Valley Voices: Boulder-White Cloud Mountain Bike Debate
Congressman Mike Simpson of Idaho is leading the charge to designate 3 separate areas as 'wilderness' covering over 250,000 acres in the Boulder and White Cloud mountain ranges. This would restrict access for mountain bikers to some of the most scenic and challenging rides the Gem State has to offer. Biking advocates feel this plan is unnecessarily restrictive and will have negative economic impacts on area businesses from a decline in cycling tourism. Supporters of the bill's current language, who simply do not like to see mountain bikers, are complete shitheads. What do YOU think?
"I have no idea why anyone would want to ride a bike in the woods when there's a perfectly good 2 lane highway."

"This is total bullshit, man. We're gonna be, like, the last state to legalize it. Hold on, what was the question?"
"I think its great to protect our wilderness, especially the foxes. Why, I saw 3 just last week. May I trouble you for a glass of warm milk? It helps me to sleep."
