    Boulder asking bikers, dog walkers, environmentalists to set trail rules

    Gone are the days we stopped to decide,
    Where we should go,
    We just ride...

    What I'd like to come out of this is "forcing" the militant hikers to accept our existence and deal with it amiably. I can't tell you how pleasant it was yesterday on Heil where every single biker and hiker was in a good mood. I even quizzed a few hikers "how are the bikers treating you" and they all said "great" every one of them. Some were puzzled at the thought that there was even a biker/hiker conflict on any trail. Go figure.

    Baffling, isn't it? When common sense and common courtesy can't be mustered, the stars will, on occasion, align and produce a slender moment of harmonious coexistence.

    The rest of the time? A quote seems in order here:

    "Taking a close look at . . . at what's around us, there . . . there is some sort of a harmony. It is the harmony of . . . overwhelming and collective murder."
