Mountain Biking Is Not a Crime - Opinion
@KeithReeder: police don't do anything about 'threats', especially to cyclists. Been there many times before. Many many many... There's different levels of criminality. Breaking into a place is at a different level to some douchebag threatening (which I'm still not prepared to call his bluff). And even then, no theft or break in I ever reported to the police resulted in an arrest.

Pinkbike's Holiday Wish List
@Happymtbfr: about six hours a week of moving time, ramping up to nine as I train for a marathon race early next year. I'm at chamois plus butt cream :-)

@endlessblockades: because I didn't read the article properly before posting my comment. Which is fair enough.

Ellsworth Launches Bold Guarantee
Anything that puts so much as one dollar into Tony's pocket, I am against. Regardless of the bikes, it is the man behind the company that many of us have an issue with. The biggest problem Ellsworth ever had or ever will have is Tony Ellsworth. Ask enough people in the industry and you'll see.

Get back to us when you've had a direct experience with Tony - then you will find out why the company has the reputation it does.

Dammit, I didn't read the first paragraph. My comment above is null and void.

Mountain Biking Is Not a Crime - Opinion
Between my house and the legal riding area is a flora and fauna reserve and anything other than fireroad is illegal. I abstained from riding the singletrack to be a good citizen and model MTBer. While riding a fireroad one day I pointed out to yet another couple collecting firewood that what they were doing was illegal (downed trees provide habitat to critters). I was abused and threatened to be bashed with some of the timber the much-larger-than-me-husband was carrying. So why should I obey the laws and preserve the park when others don't? Not only is there no-one to uphold the rules, if there was, they ain't catching me. So now I ride the singletrack and if any hiker says "You are not supposed to be on this trail." I make it very clear to them that I most certainly know that to be the case. Go, Vernon, go!

@markg1150: On any of the famous Marin trails named after coins we'd to send one guy down the trail first. He'd call if the coast was clear. If there was no call... well, we split the fine he got. No biggie on a big group ride and twenty bucks each.
