Per Moderate:


My
observation is that bicycles cause more erosion than foot traffic and the
number of cyclists doing trail maintenance is far less than the number of
hikers doing trail maintenance.


That's got to be a regional thing. * Soil type, cycling/hiking
populations....


Quite a few people do both. *I think it might be difficult to figure
out exactly what the proportions are. *I haven't gone mountain biking
in years, but the sense I get are that quite a few mountain biking
organizations are active in trail maintenance activities. *They might
not be doing so with mountain bikes in tow, so how does one know?

The mountain bike trails I know of in my area are mostly hard-packed
fire and maintenance roads. *Their maintenance was mostly by the local
land agency. *I remember hiking on one trail that was difficult enough
on foot, but would have been crazy on a bike. *It was signed for multi-
use including bikes. *The whole trail had been turned into a moonscape
by dairy cattle grazing in the area and stepping on the trail after
rains.


Man, ain't that the truth. The cows do orders of magnitude more
damage than bikes and feet combined.

They're trying to communicate to the majority of people (like Ed) who

still think it's a beefalo or a bufflecow or some such silliness.

Does this asshole mountain biker ever say one sensible thing - ever!

I am opposed to cattle grazing on the National Forests. God Damn ranchers
are even worse than mountain bikers I must admit. Read Edward Albee to get a
clue about this problem in our American West.

Hmmm... Good point. I hadn't thought of the BFC analogy, though I've had quite a
bit of experience with those loons. (Hell, I'm even on their list of potential
contributors).

The BFC people might do better if they realized the animal in question
is a bison, and not a buffalo.

Well, at least beefalo is a proper term:

And of course, the government leases public land to ranchers at *less*
than market rates, and then allows them to kill wolves and cougars [1].

Yes, I noticed that! Very strange since Google Groups has more or less
blacklisted me. Thank God I never have to use that website. My Windows Mail
via Knology is all I have ever used. My OS is Vista.
