Advocacy isn’t for everyone. However, in times of need, advocacy can mean as little as showing up to support a mass of people that all want the same thing. Please take two hours out of your day tomorrow to show up as a biker who supports the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance’s proposal to provide reasonable and responsible access for bikes on the City of Boulder’s trails, and reverse this ban. This is the most important meeting you could go to on this issue.
On January 23, 1983, mountain bikes were banned in Boulder. Tomorrow, after years of meetings, deliberations, collaborative processes and both positive and negative decisions, is the very last public input meeting in front of the Boulder City Council to basically reverse this ban. The more mountain bike access supporters who show up at this meeting, the more effective we will be in expressing our desire for equal recreation rights and access.
A community speaks louder than just a few people.
Of the handful of people who read this blog, I’m sure that there’s one of you who likes to ride bikes in Boulder. I have a favor to ask! Since I cannot be in Boulder to show up in person, I would like you to go for me. It’s at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 15 (tomorrow), at 1604 Arapahoe Avenue (Boulder).
