You elitist walkers just don't get it. Where is the logic in your call to ban bicycles? Your entire argument is "you don't mountain bike there so you should be fine with banning it." I have not been there and as such am not familiar with the area; I assume there is at least one hiking trail in the area, what logical reason do you have to ban bicycles from areas that hikers and horses are allowed?
I think you helped make Jon's point about the emotional response...
As an "elitist", I do like the fact I don't have to worry about some jacka$$ biker flying around a blind corner which has happened to me several times on "your" trails - so there is a safety aspect there. As for horses/stock, I can't defend that, but that is the law. If you're looking for support for your cause, may I suggest being slightly more tactful in the manner in which you approach those whose opinions you are attempting to sway.
