The Al Gore of Mountain Biking?
I did not invent Mt. Biking.
The excellent endorsement by the Daily Camera gets one thing about me wrong: "Mark McIntyre, who came to Boulder 40 years ago for the mountain biking..." I actually moved here because of rock-climbing and mountaineering and I became interested in cycling soon after my arrival in 1977.
According to Wikipedia " The first two mass-produced mountain bikes were sold in the early 1980s " I remember working at The Spoke when our first Stump-Jumper arrived but I certainly did not invent Mt. Biking as might be suggested by article. Just want to get that straight. I have been waiting for someone to call me out on this error and I decided to beat anyone to the punch.
