What is your vision of mountain biking in Nelson/Tasman?
Very supportive. Sad however that mountain biking is not accessible to poor people. Social inequality, stress, technological unemployment and environmental degradation are threatening our very survival. The corrosive monetary system is accelerating our demise. We no longer need money. The Resource Based Economy bring equitable solutions to all human problems. All. In the future, when everything is free and all work is voluntary, we will be free to build the most amazing tracks and ride them whenever we want to.
What is your vision of general cycling for transport and recreation in Nelson/ Tasman?
Currently stifled and restricted by monetary constraints, we are forced into polluting cars at present. When the false notion of 'affordability' is removed, we will be free to embrace sustainable transport vehicles entirely. Modern engineering, construction and manufacturing technologies enable functional, innovative and sustainable solutions to transport, leisure, industrial and residential requirements. This is the 21st century after all. The excuse of not having enough 'money' to realise our potential and to nurture and care for all is no longer relevant or acceptable.
What action do you plan to take in the next three years to support and realise your vision of mountain biking and cycling?
Introducing the concept of a Money Free, Resource Based Economy will have a greater enabling, freeing and civilizing effect on society than any other event in human history. If you guys want incredible, breathtaking, free access, unlimited trails throughout this country, with the time, equipment, friends and energy to ride them with, boy can we help you.
Have you had any involvement, support or interest in mountain biking and cycling our members may be interested in?
Built and rode some of the first 'mountain bikes', back in the early '70's. Still use bikes, of a similar age lol , today for local transport. Wish I could 'afford' a nice modern one.
