We all know what kind of mountain bikers take risks with life
and limb. They are invariably young and male ... and then like to gloat about
how seriously they were injured. The only cure for what ails them is death – and
the sooner the better. Most mountain bikers are not aware of how dangerous their
‘sport’ is nor is the community at large, other than doctors and the ER

Ed, you're a dinosaur. This is the 21st century and men and women of all ages ride; and occasionally fall off and hurt themselves.

Reports from the field refute entirely your assessment of how dangerous cycling is on hiking trails.

You poor stupid sap! It is actually criminal to encourage
women and kids to mountain bike on a hiking trail. Women and kids do not
have a clue about how dangerous mountain biking on a hiking trail is. It is why
they injure themselves just trying to ride such a trail normally without
attempting feats of daredevilry like the young males. What planet are you from

Are you seriously suggesting that an intelligent, adult woman is unable to make up her own mind as to the risks ?

Yes, when the propaganda is as one sided as it is. They simply know any better. Males will risk life and limb for an adrenalin rush. They are extremely stupid for doing that. Women and kids are not constituted that stupidly. They think biking on a hiking trail is a safe thing to do – and it is anything but!

More from the trenches:

Mountain biker airlifted following crash

This afternoon (20th Jan) at approx 2.45pm the Nelson Marlborough
Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to the scene of a mountain bike
crash near Dunn Mountain, on the Coppermine Saddle, East of Nelson.

A 48 year old Auckland man out riding with his son, sustained a
shoulder injury as a result of the crash. He was assessed by the
helicopters onboard intensive care paramedic before he and his son
were flown to Nelson Hospital.”

Mountain bikes have wheels. Wheels are for roads.

Trails are for walking. What’s the matter? Can’t walk?
