    Is this bad of me?

    A couple of bikers stopped me in the Preserve, and asked where they could find some challenging trails. Both were on basically glorified Wal-Mart bikes. Obviously I pointed them towards Cheesegrater.

    i usually also tell people that they don't need their water bottles and could I have them as I am running out of water myself.

    So I would say you did the right thing, morally anyway.

    Should have told them to head up Piestewa Peak where there is some smooth and flowy single track. And not to worry...on that trail, the hikers yield to bikers.

    Helicopters frequent the area looking for stranded hikers/bikers. Much like lifeguards at the beach. Only they're really high...like in a helicopter...

    No worse than banning people here without cause because you have an axe to grind...

    According to a FB post. It's all about the power!

    Maybe I need a Walmart bike. I'm on a blinged out bike and it's not helping much.

    Yes, then I would have pointed them towards desert classic.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Just on observation...

    Y'all need to chill out and go ride your bikes, watch a movie, sleep, play with yourselves or do whatever you do to amuse yourselves, but just get over the banning thing already! It's old. Quit being so butt hurt (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=ButtHurt) over it! Move on!

    Note: Read definition #5!
    Everyday of my life, I'm forced to add another name to the list of people that piss me off!

    I've never been a quitter!

    #5 seems to be insensitive. Thought we had a lesson the other day on being sensitive!

    ...and then head back to the Squaw Peak parking lot via 304.
