German Bureaucracy as a barrier against Mountain Bike Sports
Sometimes, the most effective barrier against montainbikes and mountainbikers, which should be abolished, is german bureaucracy. In the state of Baden Wuerttemberg it is forbidden, to bike on paths in the forest with a width < 2 meters.
By a petition (online support in development) to the state parliament some cyclists' associations fight against this bureaucratical stupidity. The petition can be supported by signing under URL http://www.2m-weg.ecosport.de.
