It's called "compensation": mountain bikers don't care about the death
of wildlife, so ....
I am working on creating wildlife habitat that is off-limits to humans
("pure habitat"). Want to help? (I spent the previous 8 years fighting
auto dependence and road construction.)

If you find us so insane and savage, what is the point of writing about
your critisims on a mtb messageboard? Do you think it makes a difference
if you wrote this or not, are you hoping to convert every mountainbiker
who read your stuff. I agree with you on one point; no bikers on hiker's
trails but I think that must be just about it.

Go bug another forum!
