They take up the whole lane, come far too close with little regard, and spew
huge amounts of black exhaust that is not just choking, but often makes
visibility very bad. In the dark and/or rain, it is even worse.

But what would you know. You're probably one of the bus riders.
I bike and bus. Our buses are MUCH cleaner than that.
My impression of
Canada is that their environmental legislation is WAY behind ours.
You're so awesome at providing
uninformed, biased opinion!
You're amazing! All you had to
do to provide some credibility
to that statement (or figure
out if you were putting your
foot in your mouth) was to a
do a couple google searches,
but even that is too much for
you . . . the more baseless,
the better for MJV.
The government looks the other way when mountain bikers build their
own illegal trails and structures in the pulic forest. QED
Uh, Mike . . you live in the Bay Area. You are a stone's throw from a
plethora of "stunts" and other built-up features on trail systems I've
Where? Or are you LYING again?

I have no incentive to lie

fool. Read further down the
message, DAGS, and find the
pictures for yourself.

read recently about your
activity as an ecoterrorist .

What are you talking about? Your vagueness is a good indicator of your

You're so full of ****, and
you know exactly what I'm
talking about.

. tsk tsk. I thought your
instrument of change was
education? Looks like you've
been lying again...

There have been plenty of
other pics floating around of
stunts built on public land,
those on spudhucksters' site,
for example, so don't just
take my word for it.


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!
