I love your magazine, have for many years and am a longterm subscriber. But please do me a favor and keep the unwarranted politics out of the magazine. Your “Offline” photo in the November issue was off-putting to say the least. I read your magazine for all things mountain biking, and love 98 percent of what you guys do. But I am also tired of politics where they don’t belong. That is not to say that a feature article, or something similar, can’t opine on current events, and if both sides are presented fairly—full steam ahead. An example of such would be the multi-part series you guys are doing on trail access right now. I am loving it! And as another example, I suspect more to come on IMBA ... an organization that I personally used to be very passionate about, but now just as passionately can’t stand. I welcome and expect differing opinions in dialogues of that nature. But to see that on the last page of the November issue incensed me. Not that Trump doesn’t deserve some of what he gets. But more importantly—I don’t need to be reminded of it, nor do I need to see it in your mag. If you turn to one side or the other politically, you will, in my opinion immediately lose (approximately?) half of those on the other side. You’ll lose me for sure, not because of an offending picture, but because I did not come to your magazine to see that. And I don’t want to stop reading or subscribing to your excellent magazine. Thanks for listening.
