Bicyclists, please boycott this event.
San Mateo County Parks bans bicycles+dog walkers from dirt paths within all County parks.

San Mateo County doesn't completely ban bicycling in county parks. Bicycling is allowed on one obscure dirt road near Pescadero. Most Menlo Park residents don't even know where Pescadero is, let alone ever consider riding their bicycles over the mountains to get there.
