That's interesting--in my head, I'm hearing "Mup" pronounced as a word (so "a), while you're hearing em you pee (so "an").
Third option is to read it as 'multiple use path", in which case "a" would be appropriate.

Gotta say, that's either a deliberate or inadvertent misreading of what he wrote, or you just have a really unique definition of the word "likened".

I lived in Valley Forge in the late 90s and used to rollerblade on that trail between Phoenixville and Norristown. That's the ONE thing I miss about Philadelphia. I found the populous to be generally inconsiderate and often abrasive, especially around bars. Granted, I married a girl from Pittsburgh and she got homesick but by and large I prefer riding in more rural locales in the western part of the state and eastern Ohio. Even the beer drinking is more mellow.

Honestly, I've never used it in conversation because those tend towards discussions of specific paths.

Seriously?
Avid cyclists(experienced or not)are more often than not elitist jerks.
Call it what it is please.
i agree!! It's the avid cyclists that are usually the ones with the attitude problems- holier than thou breaking all the rules "whoo hoo look at me! I'm a cyclist and a bad-ass and renegade! Get out of my way!" Ppppplease....

I reckon you guys should get rid of MUP's.
Lot's of things that hurts people's feelings happen on them, (and then we have to put up with threads detailing those hurt feelings here).

Hmmm... "jerseys with poseur pockets, tight shorts and "clod" shoes that cause them to walk like ducks. Probably some $10,000 bikes in the bunch."

Yup - that's me (except my bikes are not that expensive). I started racing in 1991. I have two National Championships jerseys. I have multiple State Championship jerseys. I have gone from Cat.4 to Cat.1 and raced four years (94-97) on the USPro circuit. My shoes cost more than most high end work boots. I even avoid most group rides because I simply ride faster and harder than most want to and am more comfortable riding on my own or with fellow racers.

I also know that blocking a trail is rude and foul language directed at someone calling out the bad behavior is immature & pathetic. Unfortunately there are too many elitist jackasses in cycling. However, there are also a lot of assumptions being made about how many of them there are out there.
