My 15 minutes of fame...

The meeting was, as these things go, a big success. Only about 20 people turned out, but it was something like 18 mountain bikers and 2 grumpy NIMBYs, so for once we had the advantage of numbers.

Long story short, the Open Space Board of Trustees voted to recommend a bike-accessible trail on Anemone hill. This is a really big deal - kudos to everyone who showed up and made their voices heard.

As an aside, I got quoted in the Daily Camera article. And they took out all the "um" and "uh" so that I sound smart!

Sounds like there was some social/political action fatigue from West TSA based on the numbers.

And you should say "cyclists" not "bikers"

That quote from the board member is encouraging. Wonder if BCOS and JCOS are going to invert in the next few years.

Good job Walt. Even Pat Billig was sort of convinced. The world is run by those who show up.
