Looks like Boulder cyclists got the head fake from Boulder officials to allow cyclists on Anemone Hill as a connector to Betasso. This connector trail would have given cyclists immediate downtown access to trails and remove the requirement to ride on Boulder Canyon for those wanting to ride to Betasso. The number of mountain bike trails accessible close to town will remain embarrassedly low.
From the Daily Camera
The 5-4 vote rejecting mountain bike access on the planned Anemone Hill loop trail came at a special meeting in which the highly contentious West Trail Study Area plan was resurrected for several hours. The plan -- which defines public access to the 11,250-acre swath of open space west of Broadway that stretches from Linden Avenue south to Eldorado Springs Drive -- was approved in March, but the leaders have tweaked the plan several times since then.
Brandon Dwight from Boulder Cycle Sport sets the tone well how not much has changed in 20+ years in regards to feeding the appetite of access to trails in Boulder
And all that after BMA fought HARD for Open Space to win 1B in the last election.
BMA is recommending that supporters vote out the old guard that has been blocking so much and support those who do support us
City council says no bikes on Anemone. Make a difference at the ballot box. Vote the BMA slate: King, Karakehian, Wilson, Hoffman
