We have all been there. You open up your local paper or a weblink to an article and read about a mountain biking trail you have some knowledge about. Somewhere around paragraph three your jaw drops at how much the reporter got wrong. How did this happen? How can a simple (seeming) story about mountain bike trails go so off the rails and come out looking like it’s a story in Pravda about capitalist pigs?
So how does this happen?
We’ve all heard it, “I’m not an anti-mountain biker, I just think that…” Or maybe you have heard “calling me an anti-mountain biker is a pejorative”.
That raises some questions, of course. What is an anti-mountain biker and anti-mountain biking? Is it a pejorative to say a person or group is anti-mountain bike? If it is not a pejorative, why should anti-mountain biking persons and groups be correctly identified?
This article is bit longer than the post. But there was a lot of ground to cover.
On May 8th, 2018 the Hopkins, MN Center for the Arts hosted and interesting group. Calling themselves Conserve Lone Lake Park, they hosted a meeting on why the citizens of neighboring Minnetonka should be opposed to the proposal for mountain biking trails in Lone Lake Park.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
