Default The Joys & Pleasures of Cycling on Trails

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.

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 ?
