A classic example of the logic of the City of Boulder and the city council: The Habitat Conservation area on Marshall Mesa. "This designation protects and preserves the fragile landscapes that are home to sensitive or rare plants and animals". "Travel on Designated trails only" Unless your a cow, a very rare animal that has no impact on sensitive plants - at least according to the City of Boulder.
The latest from Boulder: applying similar logic to exclude cyclists from the remaining 2% of the west TSA "open" space, and thus protecting their own dog walking experience on all of the west TSA and building this new hiking/dog/horse only trail that we the people (i.e. tax payers) will be paying for. Hating bikes - Who would have thought that the City of Boulder and the GOP has so much in common?
