it's the 80th anniversary of the kinder trespass ... er ... tomorrow...
and i've been thinking.
maybe we could organise something similar for bikers, but i don't think this is a good idea.
if it went well, we'd get 200 (more?) bikers to the top of a big hill, we'd hang around for a few minutes, and go home.
afterwards, anti-bike groups would be able to highlight the disruption we caused (parking, traffic, erosion*, damaged stiles, shouting, etc.) as good reasons to continue limiting access for bikes.
so instead, how about a nation-wide day of protest. we go and ride a peachy bit of singletrack near where we live. the quieter the better.
so, tomorrow. i'll be riding on a footpath, who's with me?
be nice about it, and give walkers room.
but, if you've picked the right trail, you won't see (m)any walkers - that's almost the point.
(*yes, erosion, 200 bikes will do that)
