Mountain biking is a wonderful thing. It has enriched my life, sometimes defined my identity (try to stay away from too much of that) and keeps me sane. That said, I really value a community (in this case NSMB bikers) who are willing to examine themselves and the world around them through a unique lens and make some changes if indicated.  Biking, like any activity, has effects outside of our bubble so I don’t think we can’t just call ourselves bikers and leave it at that.  I do understand that for many of us biking is a healthy escape from it I empathize when I read comments like this. I still go on rides when I need to take a break from the stress of life. My only counter to that thought process is that when there is so much frank injustice and so many people suffering in the world, I feel good knowing I have colleagues to hash it out with rather than bury our heads in the sand.
