La vie de vélo

Adventures in cycling and life

Bush finally gets something right.

My opinion of our lame duck president rose by an infinite amount today. That is to say I went from zero respect to a small inkling of respect.

Bush layed out a plan to help open national parks to cyclists. While it will surely be seen by environmental groups as appeasment to the all-powerful bike lobby, I think he makes a great point by differentiating cycling from motorized vehicles. The Extreme-Meathead-DH-Freeride crowd has doiminated public perception of MTBs so much that most trail users equate MTB with dirt bikes. But this plan might prove to reduce that perception, at least from a regulatory perspective.
