One More Dishonest Attempt to Justify Mountain Biking

Your story, and the so-called "research" it was based on, are bogus.
As you can see in my review of that same literature (at
http://home.pacbell.net/mjvande/scb7), Jeff Marion and other people
who are trying to justify mountain biking have not been telling the
truth. It's not a coincidence that most of this research has been
funded by companies (such as Shimano) and organizations (such as IMBA)
that stand to profit from this whitewashing (or greenwashing) of
mountain biking. Your article is not journalism, but propaganda.

Ted Stroll should stick to topics he knows something about. Science
isn't one of them

Hey Mike - are you *still* banging this drum after all these years?
You must be a *really* sad sack. How's that working out for you?

Big thanks for pointing out this article - interesting and makes
useful referential ammo. I know you didn't intend to end up on the
mountain-biking-advocacy side, but cheers anyway!

Mike Vandeman: mountain-biking advocate - who'd have thought?

Bigotry bad.

Not with anyone who can READ. Or understands SCIENCE.
