From the Daily Camera:
Hurt feelings, bruised egos and political attacks all are among the fallout of the Boulder City Council's decision not to allow mountain bikes on a planned loop at Anemone Hill.
And, while some people are questioning whether some of the leaders made up their minds long before Tuesday night's vote, others are wondering where mountain bike advocates will go from here.
"I guess I feel like the door was slammed in the face of the mountain bike community," said Jason Vogel, president of the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance.
Vogel said the council's narrow 5-4 vote -- which rejected mountain biking as an allowed use on a planned 5-mile pedestrian and equestrian trail just west of downtown Boulder -- has perhaps caused irreparable harm to the relationship between the city and mountain bikers.
