"[T]he cause of expanding bike trails, no matter how popular, should not give Columbia community leaders carte blanche to lay bike trails down wherever they please. If some person, business, or organization owns property and doesn’t want a bike trail running through it, they should be able to politely reject the city’s plan to construct a bike trail on their property. Unfortunately, it appears that the city council may decide to ignore such a refusal. And, in a strange twist, the city is poised to harm the ability of some Columbia residents to enjoy the outdoors in the name of encouraging other Columbia residents to enjoy the outdoors."
