    More people need to know and be connected to such a great cause. If you haven't already you should sign up for their newsletter or read their blog . I enjoy reading it while I have lunch at work!

    do more, let people know that the Sierra Club is not your friend if you are under 60. like the BlueShirts in the McDs, but more lawyers.

    if life were like Logan's Run...we'd have legal pot, humanitarian inclusion of all citizens, and bike parks. our medical budget would be balanced, we could get rid of social security and invest the contributions ourselves, and no more Sheriff Joe.

    when the oldest folks living become people that grew up in the 60's, its going to be real hard to stop the legalization of marijuana... you heard this prediction from me first...

    ok back to the Sierra Club

    Your statement is wrong....according to the Sierra Club's own media packet dated FEB, 2013, the median age is 54, 48% of the membership is >55 and only 16% is <34.

    Don't trust me, here's my source, page 7:
    http://www.sierraclub.org/sierra/med...ine-201302.pdf

    In all fairness...I'll be the first to acknowledge the difference between average and median, but I also found your source which is between 15-20 years old....which is also unsubstantiated since it came from an interview in a business journal and was a tout piece about the former director of the Sierra Club...who now consults for Wal Mart....weird.

    I don't know that it really matters but yeah here is my source...

    Sierra Club President Calls For Activism * He Tells Muhlenberg Crowd To Fight Apathy And To Get Involved. - Morning Call

    "Under his tenure, the average age of Sierra Club members has dropped from 47 to 37 and membership has increased to 600,000 nationwide. It was also a vocal lobbyist for the clean air standards proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the global warming treaty."


    Blaming the Sierra Clubs actions on the age of the members would be the same as blaming it on the fact that 84% are college graduates........... Implying they're all libtards out to save the world.

    Gotta go ride now.

    Good job quoting an article from 1998. The ages in your article are more in line with Maad's #'s taking into account the 15 years that have passed.

    yes this is true. but outdoorsy people opposed to mtbs tend to be the old Carla's of the world who think the only way to enjoy nature is at walking pace and being quiet. in that regard it is absolutely an age-based thing.

    Truthfully,
    They're not your friend, if you breath ... It's the deep-seated stuff that gets scary.
    What they portray to the public is mild.
    Seek out "Agenda 21" they strongly support the efforts of Global Environmental Control ... But you have to connect many UN dots to get to the heart of the mentality.

    Mtbers disturb the wildlife less because they spend a fraction of the time on a given point of the trail in comparison with hikers.

    I hope this isn't new news to anyone that the Sierra club HATES mountain bikes.

    This is exactly why I was such a staunch supporter of the dirt bikers out at P&D. It is simply a matter of time until they come for us. They want to preserve public lands FROM the public rather than FOR the public. Divide and conquer.
