Mountain biking strategy to be looked at for Halifax


#1

If this is a repost…oops.


#2

The commenter, Michael Vandeman seems to have an irrational hate on for mtbrs.


#3

Googling a bit more… this dude is proper obsessed with anti-mtb. Was charged with attacking bikers in California.

Must have seen the article in a google search or something.


#4

Yes, I’ve seen him saying the same thing about MTB in other places. He must be the last of these types. There were a lot of them back in the 90s.


#5

Vandeman has a long history of this nonsense. Just ignore him otherwise he will drown you in verbal diarrhea.


#6

Careful not to say his name too much or we might summon him. He is a complete nut and the last person we want noticing this site.


#7

Don’t take it too personally, according to his bio he also dislikes ATVs, horses, burros, jetskis, rafts and snowmobiles.


#8

Seems like a good guy tho…


#9

Holy shit, I remember getting into it with that asshole 15 years ago.

Yup. He’s been at it for years.

I was just reading through one of his old rants about bicycles, and noticed a tidbit that is interesting. He was a member of a cult in the 70’s. It was called Synanon. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synanon (referenced in the second last paragraph of this article: http://www.imaja.com/as/environment/mvarticles/CriticalMass.html )
I would guess that is where he gets his single minded drive to hate anything that doesn’t fit with his ideals.
