I also follow the rules, and requests. I like how you have this whole situation played out for me. You have me riding the trails, coming here, and bragging about the miles, and then complaining about the trails. I like how you think that you can just predict what you see as the future, and publicly slander me in doing so.
I know you were simply asking. And then when you were answered, you asked again. Then you tried the "hikers and skiers" defense in an attempt to circumvent the answer.
I have been on the forum enough to know that you were riding Swamp Thing while it was closed. That is not respect. I know how many hours you have logged this year on our chapter's trails.
I have this situation played out, because history tends to repeat itself. If you did it before (and you have) then the odds are you will do it again.
I like how you take an offer to clarify as public slander. Contrary to how you main feel, everybody is not out to get you.
Now that this thread has been sufficiently derailed, I feel this discussion has come to completion.
1) Burchfield Park is closed to bikes until further notice: This means on week days, Sundays, sunny days, snowy days, wet, dry, damp, moist, parched, flooded. Not until the park says it is OK.
2) Burchfield Park is open to hikers and skiers. If you need to get out to the park, here is how.
3) If you want to go snow riding, or if the trails are in appropriate shape (frozen, dry) there is still Anderson and Bennett park.
