Years ago I (anonymously) posted this little rant in the Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists forum (MORC). As intended, it pissed quite a few people off. The president of MORC found my email address and for some reason started sending me really graphic porn. It was akward.
I just moved back to Burnsville after living out west for 2 years. I used to ride Terrace Oaks and Lebanon all the time. For first time since returning to the Midwest, I rode both trails today. (Yes I know Terrace is "closed" – call the police). I have a few comments to make in regards to the changes made to the trails in the last two years:
The very first hill climb into the trails was made way easier. Not that big of a deal – but why!!?? Then the sweet swooping banked downhill into the creek was completely removed! "What the fuck!!" I exclaimed to my riding partner. Then I jokingly said "I bet that really steep climb is closed off too." And guess what – the motherfucking steep climb IS closed off! You fucking pussies put in a gentle switch back grade all the way to the top. WHY!!??
