    CBS 4 News on Apex

    CBS 4 was at Apex this afternoon (Sunday) interviewing hikers and cyclist for a story on the 10pm news. From the questions being asked, it seemed like they were biased toward hikers.

    Not a bad story, seemed bike biased to me. They made it sound pointless though, like he was saying "they are fighting a battle they already lost".

    It actually seemed a bit pro bike, nice report I thought.

    other than the "8 to 1 vote in favor" (OSAC) comment i'd say this story was pretty good.

    wish they would've shown up thurs night to get footage of 400 MTB'ers waiting in line to get in.

    What was the 8-1 vote comment about? Has there been a vote or was that just an error in the news story?

    good question.

    well there was no vote during the apex session at thursday night's meeting... that's not to say, i suppose, that they didn't call for a vote at the end of the meeting after the legal counsel report and before adjournment. ?

    i'm sure we'll find out soon enough.

    I didn't think it was a bad segment. One of the things that my wife and I often comment on is that news reporters generally seem to interview some real idiots. Not the case on this one. The hikers and runners were ok and the cyclists seemed positive, proactive, educated, and well spoken. That's worth a lot.

    I rode up there today and no reporters.

    We did count 23 bikers, 11 hikers.

    It took about 2.5 hours to do, but we have some fantastic EF fall follage-singletrack footage now!
