Busted Over Bikes

RECEIVED Thu., July 16, 2020

Dear Editor,
    “Cyclists Banned From Butler Trail.” That’s what the headline will read if cyclists don’t slow the F down on Butler Trail! I’ve ridden my bicycle on the trails since the Eighties. On some of the downhills, I come close to 10 mph, the rest of the time around 5 mph. Unfortunately, some of the macho shitheads weaving in and out of pedestrians at 20 mph+ are going to get us ALL banned. To them, I have one word: VELOWAY. No, there’s not an audience to be wowed by your cycling skills at the Veloway, but you can go as fast as you want. There’s no love for cyclists out on Butler Trail anyway. Do you remember Cyclo-cross?  I didn’t think so. That’s because the ruling class doesn’t want cyclists on the trails or in the parks. So keep it up and the headline “Cyclists Banned From Butler Trail” will soon be in our future.
