    Well, I did comment. There seriously are too many people who are somewhat freakish in their dislike for others.

    Reading the comments section of the Daily Camera confirms that I will never live in Boulder.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    As far as the proposed trail goes. I ride 36 to Lyons sometimes and while a separate path would be nice that particular road really isn't so bad to ride on. I suspect that is why it is such a popular bike route in the first place.
    I think the money would be better spent on other routes.

    I haven't read all of the comments but these seem pretty reasonable compared to some that I have seen on the DC blogs. Even Lidarman posted something terribly informed and reasonable. My students at CU are studying local open space management and they have gotten a big kick out of reading some of the comment sections associated with other articles (Hogan Ranch easement purchase, dog regs, etc etc etc). Never a dull moment in this town.

    I have to buy some hemp or jute shirts before I visit Boulder again. Anyone know where I can get some. Oh, and don't expect me to be bike-friendly when I'm there. I'll be mowing all dem punks down as soon as I hit the city limits!

    No doubt! While I like living here and the riding is excellent, the roaming gangs of christians is rather annoying, BTW, Ted H. attended a camp and got fixed of his illness, he's a good christian again and is saving souls in AZ now I hear.

    I didn't bother reading all those smelly opinions of the proposed route but I'm all for anything that gets us off the roads, we have a nice network of paths here that lead to almost all of our trails if we want to ride to the trailhead, and they are pretty much christian free cause they are too busy attending ungay camps or something like that.

    Not as annoying as some of the anti-Christians I've met.

    They really roam around in groups there? Oh yeah, I'm sure Ted is all cured now and ready to save a few thousand more souls. The ghey escorts in AZ must be rubbing their hands in glee while his wife wonder WTF she should do next- besides tag along

    I'm sure there's more meth in AZ vs the springs.

    will the biking community chip in and pay to ensure they get exactly what they want?

    I personally would like this trail to be a gocart trail. no dogs no walkers no bikers

    just gocarts. We need one of these. I will chip in

    My post was kind of a sarcasm double cross, poking fun at the Springs and Boulder steroetypes, but I couldn't resist the Ted H. christian hypocrisy trifecta!

    I've a headache after reading that.

    I did find the second comment amusing.

    This project needs to be thought thru as the subject of dog waste, indeed any pollution to the water supply, is clearly a major concern to the people of Boulder.

    The city needs to hire a consulting firm to measure the waste along the route from dogs, geese, elk, skunk etc over a period of a year to take into account seasonal differances. Dead carcasses also need to be taken into account.

    For accounting visibility the piles should be marked with flags for easier auditing. The piles of waste and carcasses should be evaluated for impact to the water supply. Would a rabbit that died of disease be more of a risk than a pile of goose poop?

    Only when we have determined the relative danger of the various forms of pollution should this project proceed. Until we understand the risk the town needs to post rangers 7/24 along the canel to ensure wildlife does not pollute the drinking water.

    I read that he dropped out of that program early so the cure might not have taken.

    and it's kinda ironic this comment is followed by this one

    Talk for years and no action. No sense of urgency.

    You people leave Ted alone, according to him none of what was alleged was true. You believe him don't you?

    Sorry I derailled this thread with that picture of sexybritches Ted.
    is this guy serious?
    I am fairly certain he was not being serious.
    The comments on that article are not really that different from what you would find on any other newspaper webpage comment section. A high level of asshattery is common.

    This isn't the first thread to get derailed, happens all the time. Warped minds are the norm around here. By the way, what is this thread about?

    There's a lesson to be learned here, kids. Do your part, be an asshat.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Reading the comments section of this BS MTBR thread confirms that I would rather live in Boulder.

    Roving rogue Christian evangelist groups scare me.
