Large deposits of gold discovered in the Michaux State Forest. State politicians seeking to remove the precious metal via large strip mines have been met with resistance from local mountain bike organizations. In an appearant land grab Gov. Ed Rendell has proposed a bill which would outlaw mountain bikes and make the entire forest available for private sale to strip mining operations and tract home developers.
In the bill, anyone caught riding or owning a mountain bike in PA would be subject to severe penalties which could include trail maintenance!
