    So wait, geological formations that provide no use are more important that sweet single tracks that provide huge amounts of entertainment? What advantage is ancient sandstone formations providing us anyways? I fail to see the logic in your post good sir. What exactly do you see is being lost?

    In the 11 years since the OP was first made, is it safe to presume the limestone is completely gone?

    I have an off roading expedition this summer to Colorado and it would a bummer if the limestone formations were all gone.

    Somebody forgot their tin foil hat I guess. Maybe it would protect from all that whooping and hollering. Good grief.

    I should mention that I have lived in Colorado. There are much bigger environmental threats to Colorado than some noisy folks on bikes.

    This thread reminds me of Marikina City here in the Philippines where they have a bike lane. Although this comment is not related to the topic, I would just like to let you know that bikers are respected in some parts of our country. However, it seems like only in a few cities and towns but the rest of the country have no concern whatsoever for bikers.

    That is really a shame, since bikers and nature are not and must not be enemies. In order for that to happen we have to follow some simple rules and use common sense, which some times we don't.

    Isn't there a regulation in using that Colorado park? I am a mountain biker myself but I wouldn't dare tread on grasses that looked worn and soil with visible erosion. Those are indications of overuse. And why do those bikers continue doing that? Couldn't they see the damage they are causing to the area? Well, sorry for the many questions, I just wanted to relieve myself of the tension.
