Well, it seems to me, that if you cared more about them, you would
advocate trails designated for bikes only or the use of helmets, not the
complete abolition of the sport. But perhaps that's just my opinion, as
a hiker and a biker. By the way, having an opinion contrary to yours
doesn't make the last poster a hypocrit. And what's with all the cross
posting?

It's sobering to think that if you shave once a day for 18 years it will
kill you.

Just injure you actually. That one surprised me so much I looked it up in
the article and it's not a death sentance.
