You've not shown an ounce of education or culture Ed. You're profane, hubristic, innumerate and can't argue logically using precepts and logic. No wonder the land managers ignore you.
I am giving you what you have deserved all of your life – some straight talk about how stupid you are. ALL mountain bikers are slobs. It is in their DNA.
Most hikers tend to be solitary types, even if they are hiking
with others. Trails are where we can be at one with nature and closest to God
(if He exists). The very last thing any hiker needs on the trail is a god damn
cyclist doing his ****ing sport. Find a race track for what you want to
So, you just reiterated my point; you are solitary and don't socialise with others. As such, your views are your own ... you have no idea what the majority view is since you've never sought to find out.
My views are those of all serious hikers, who by nature tend to be solitary. We solitary types occasionally get together and exchange views, but it is not really necessary because I KNOW what all serious hikers want on the trail – some communion with nature. We can’t get that with bikers whizzing around us.
And, to repeat myself, most of the trails were originally meant
for people travelling from point A to point B ... not as recreation for elitist
and self regarding people like you.
It doesn't matter what trails were for originally. For the
past hundred years or so they have been given over to hikers. That is because
our forefathers had some brains, unlike the present generation of idiots like
So "It doesn't matter what the trails were for originally" ? Great, then clearly it's fine for them to be used for mountainbiking. If it's fine for you to annex them then why is it any different for a different use ?
You simply do not know how to read. I stated that for the past hundred years or so they have been given over to hikers. That statement assumes for anyone who can read that that use should continue forever. Learn how to read between the lines if that is even remotely possible.
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!

Mountain bikes have wheels. Wheels are for roads.
Trails are for walking. What’s the matter? Can’t walk?
