    mountain bikers should boycott this event. the san mateo county parks dept does not have any legal mountain biking. why is this even a news item?

    This event supports the SMCo Parks “Foundation”. I say support this event by riding your bicycle in it, and speak to each+every other rider,volunteer,and promoter about the current ban on mt bikes within SMCo Parks.
    This event directly funds “Bicycle Sunday”, which requires paid staff to close +monitor each end of Canada rd during this popular summer non auto traffic’d opportunity to ride on Canada rd.
    My point is to suggest that we work on opening trails from within the ranks of parks supporters, also showcasing the advantages of inclusive policies that could generate $$ from cyclists ranks to support parks.
    I am thoroughly disgusted by the current mt bike ban on every inch of dirt trails within SMCo Parks.
