 This is the most used hiking trail in Norway due to the easy axxess to a relatively alpine trail. You will meet dutchmen in rope, portuguese women in high heels, german academics in their jack wolfskin suit, and denim clad caffe latte sipping Norwegian city dwellers. (500+ hikers on a sunny summer day).
If you have any slight concern for trail advocacy and axxess issues, please do not bring your bike there.

 Typically I think most mountain bikers do. I don't get the appeal of biking near a bunch of hikers. Cool video definitely not for me.

 I don't think many would have the drive or balls to do so in the first place. Its obvious this was just a one-off incredible edit for Red Bull. Its just like the BASE jumpers and freerunners. Of course don't break and enter and tresspass, etc. but for a cool edit for everyone to enjoy, eh, I don't mind it. That was incredible and that first section... damn.

 Thanks Ynotgorilla for this insight which is also very relevant for swiss trails and something which is constantly a topic of dicussion. Such a line is certainly not something which is done every day, but being such a prominent piece can have two effects: a) 'that's awesome and shows the potential to establish mountain biking as a cultural value of our communities (like hiking) or b) that's crazy, irresponsible, dangerous and should be banned". That the results can go in opposite directions is proven by Graub√ľnden where two townships 60km apart (Davos and Samnaun) demonstrate these diametrically opposite positions. European mountain bikers do not have the luxury of hiding out somewhere in the endless canadian forest to do their thing so our consideration of such factors is crucial.
