I was reading the Laguna Beach Independent, and specifically, an editorial written by local radio host Billy Fried. In his editorial, he was summarizing each of the candidates for Laguna Beach City Council. The longest running member of the Council, Toni Iseman, evidently shared a ridiculous idea on Billy's radio show. Here's the text: WTF? So how would that work, do you suppose? All riders register at one of the entrances using their legal ID. Rangers(?) patrol to make sure all riders are donning their bibs? So hiker gets startled by mt. biker. They call somebody (ranger, police) and report the number. A warning or consequence gets levied against the mt. biker? Guilty! I will contact her directly to get clarification of these comments. She probably sees herself as being helpful to mt. bikers as she probably is pressured to make mt. biking the trails in Laguna entirely illegal. I am guessing this "bib system" would be her response. Pre-label all mt. bikers as a danger. I listened to the radio broadcast and heard her comments directly. She did follow up with the rhetorical question, "I don't know..is that too much of a police state?" The radio host and she then mentioned that tapping into the aging Rads - including Hans Rey and Brian Lopes - may be the key to more responsible riding. This is why it is so critical that all of us ride with courtesy. But we can do all of the right things and the older hikers will still hate mt. bikes. After I contact Iseman and get the details directly, I will return here and discuss any necessary collective actions we would need to take to stop the idea and make sure she is not re-elected.
