For once mountain bikers are on the other side of the trail access debate. Apparently mountain bikers are fed up with equestrians illegally using the trails at two parks in the Lubbock, TX area and a recent letter to the editor shows mountain bikers aren’t afraid to speak out.
As you may recall, a crazy hiker in Lubbock, TX targeted mountain bikers by placing booby traps around the local trail network. In that case mountain bikers were within their rights to use the trail system and the eco-terrorist in question was arrested.
Seems like there are some pretty tough mountain bikers in Lubbock – hats off to them for speaking up and standing for their rights to trail access!
