So much for the myth that mountain biking is good for your health!

OJAI

Mountain biker found dead is identified

Officials with the Ventura County Medical Examiner-Coroner's Office
identified a mountain biker found dead this weekend as James Ross, 54,
of Ojai.

Officials completed an autopsy, but the cause of death is still under
investigation, Mike Feiler, senior deputy medical examiner, said
Sunday.

Natural causes are the most likely explanation because there was no
sign of trauma, Feiler said. Authorities withheld judgment until they
could reach the man's physicians for more information, Feiler said.

Ross was found near his mountain bike about half a mile up the Gridley
Road Trail in Ojai on Saturday.

Authorities believe that he died between 1 and 2:30 p.m., Feiler said.

Just remember, no matter how you live or what you do, none of us will ever
get out of here alive.

You can leave whenever you like, but you don't have the right to take
wildlife with you.

Sure we do, we are the top of the food chain. Ever try whipsnake ??
Mighty tasty, I killed two, burned one up completely in the fire, the
other was very good.

More proof that mountain biking and hiking are similar.
CONCORD, N.H. --Heart disease led to the death of a hiker who collapsed off
the south side of Mount Sunapee, the state Medical Examiner's determined
Monday.

D. L******* of Concord, 56, was an experienced hiker. He had trekked 4 1/2
miles on the Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway Trail that snaked up the back side
of the 2,726-foot mountain on Sunday.

L******* collapsed just north of Lucia's Lookout, about 4.5 miles south of
the Newbury Trail trailhead near Lake Sunapee. The state Medical Examiner's
office determined that L******* died suddenly of complications from heart
disease.

All the more reason to live in a way that you can be proud of, instead
of selfishly abusing people and wildlife for cheap thrills such as
mountain biking.

Thanks for demonstrating what the typical mountain biker attitude is:
you are the only one who matters.

Hell yeah, we are the only ones who matters. No one gives a **** about
you and your stupid ideas/thoughts.

I truly enjoy poking a stick at the gullible troll. I will next poke fun
of your smushed cat that Im sure you believe a mountain biker ran over.

Hey, BTW, can you post a picture of your 20 x 20 "pure habitat" (aka your
back yard)

This is just way too easy

Are your family members equally proud of your decades-long obsession, Mike?

Or, as seems much more likely, do they express concern that you're wasting
your life and that you may have a mental illness? Have they ever
recommended that you speak with a mental health professional?

Do you have any close friends and/or lovers in the real world? Or, is this
your real world?
