A Little Trail Drama on the North Shore of Vancouver

People sabotaging the trails so bikers can't use them, now facing prosecution. I have to admit, I'm always impressed with how well organized riders are compared to other trail users (runners/hikers/climbers) - and on the one occasion where I found myself at a parks meeting disagreeing with representative of a local bike group, it wasn't about conservation, it was just about safety. Maybe I'm naive but I've never really encountered a conflict like they apparently have in North Vancouver, but if it's going to happen anywhere, ironically it would logically be in the city with highest per capita outdoorsiness.
