Not a very good analogy. Pretty difficult for a train to slow down and go around you. Pretty easy for these guys to do so. There wasn't much risk of a collision here.

Ok what if there's a boulder coming down a mountain, logic would dictate for one to move out of the way no?

Indy had the right idea

Note: boulders aren't single-minded twitbags that think only about their own gratification and entitlement, that only read one or two bits out of 17 pages of posts while ignoring any of the reasoning, fail to grasp Uncle's article, and then proceed to chime in a week later with more "yeah yeah yeah". It's amazing that some people can count the gears on their bike.

PS- Indy was stealing artifacts from indigenous people at the time. If he got squashed, it would have served him right.

Just to flog a dead horse some moreā€¦..

I've been through the area of the 'no respect' incident a bunch of times since then. If it is a weekend with nice weather, you see people 'parked' at the intersection of Severed and the up trail more often then not. I believe further education or signage might be a good idea before summer comes. (The same goes for area at the end of Good Sir Martin - I almost had to elbow my way through there recently).:ohthedrama:

I don't ride anywhere as crowded as the shore but a loud and friendly "heads up" as I approach has always worked for me.

There were many people congregating there today. My buddy politely informed them that they were hanging out in the middle of a DH trail. They said oops and moved along. Honest mistake, and they didn't realize it.

The signage there is subtle. Maybe something more blatant is needed. When a lot of people are already in the area, the small "trail crossing" sign is easy to miss.

unacceptable. mountain biking is serious business. don't these people know that this sort of behavior could hurt someone's KOM? or their self-image of being the uber rad-gnar enduro bro?

there is no room in this sport for anything less. at least that's what most of the dicks who posted earlier in this thread would have you believe.

Yeah, someone should talk to their Sponsors, man.

It's all or nothing, no middle ground of course.

People who want to ride trail are dicks. People who stand around on the trail are dicks.

No room for fun, lets just be grumpy.

Serious business after all.

Thanks Lee

The raw, primitive, unrefined trails that see little to no maintenance are the kinds of trails that really build skill. What kind of skills do you learn riding a trail that was made by a machine, groomed to perfection and void of any rocks, roots or other obstacles that could send you careening over the handlebars?

Will this one come with a controversy or an intersection or Sponsors or all three?
