Our wildlands are not outdoor gymnasiums or amusement parks.

On the other hand, his fantasy has resulted in him having someone
(Blackblade) to talk with. Without his constant bemoaning the use of
"trails" by multiple types of users he would be totally alone.
I have never known a hiker who will admit to liking bikers on trails. I am far from alone. I simply say what all other hikers are thinking but are too polite to voice. Hikers are gentlemen; bikers are thugs and criminals ... besides being the scum of the earth of course.
Mountain bikers are barbarians and have no right to be on any trail used by hikers – unless they want to get off their god damn ****ing bikes and walk like everyone else. When they crash and injure themselves, I rejoice! If and when they manage to kill themselves, I say good riddance to bad rubbish! Death to mountain biking!
“Tread softly! All the earth is holy ground.”

from "A Later Life: A Double Sonnet of Sonnets"
Mountain bikes have wheels. Wheels are for roads.
Trails are for walking. What’s the matter? Can’t walk?
