  1. Notice that he is writing hate mail from work, when he is supposed to be working -- dishonesty that
    is typical of mountain bikers.

    Mike - Just ran across some of your letters on the web regarding mountain biking.

    "One look at a mountain bike is enough to tell you that it is up to no good: the knobby tires are
    designed to rip up the soil, and the suspension systems are designed to insulate the rider from the
    shocks, as they beat the trail to a pulp."

    "We are literally creating a generation that is too lazy to walk..."

    Frightening stuff. Truly, something needs to be done. Your painfully exaggerated descriptions of
    mountain bikes and their irresponsible, environmentally unconscious owners has already motivated me
    to join the IMBA. I do share your environmental concerns in general, but your focus on mountain
    bikes as a nature damaging component is like complaining that kids are spitting in the river
    downstream from the Dow chemical plant. Your target cause is just, but your aim is senseless.

    - Mike
    I am working on creating wildlife habitat that is off-limits to humans ("pure habitat"). Want to
    help? (I spent the previous 8 years fighting auto dependence and road construction.)
