Mike,

Share the trails. I have heard you have assaulted a mountain biker. That is so wrong. You have no credibility. Everyone should be able to enjoy the trails as they are not just yours. I am a female mountain biker. I ride. I enjoy it and I always will and you can never change that because you are irrational and uneducated. But should you ever make an attempt to threaten me on the trails, and if I ever see you on a trail and you try to put your hands on me like you have towards others, l will rip your head off and crush it with my bike.

To the Editor:



Since the Park District is revising its Master Plan, now is the perfect time (by 10/31 at
http://ebrpdmasterplan.org/) to ask them to get mountain biking out of the parks! Mountain bikes, with their "aggressive" knobby tires and high speed, grind the trails into powder, which washes away in the first rain, leaving V-shaped ruts and degraded creeks and other habitat. Even the mountain bikers themselves, with rare candor, use the term "shredding the trails" to refer to mountain biking.



Countless insects, lizards, snakes, and other small plants and animals are killed by these "wheeled locusts". Hikers and equestrians are abandoning the trails and the parks, because it is unpleasant and dangerous to have to constantly be on the alert to avoid being hit by a biker coming around a blind turn at high speed. Illegal biking and even illegal trail-building are common in the parks.



It's beyond me to understand why mountain bikers insist on biking in the parks, when walking provides the best way to actually see the parks. Careening through them at high speed -- or even low speed -- doesn't allow one to actually see anything, since you have to give all of your attention to controlling your bike on unpredictable terrain.



It's high time that we restricted bikes to paved roads, where they can't do much harm!



Sincerely yours,



Fed up with mountain biking

I am working on creating wildlife habitat that is off-limits to humans ("pure habitat").

Want to help? (I spent the previous 8 years fighting auto dependence and road construction.)



Please don't put a cell phone next to any part of your body that you are fond of!
