    From the comments section:

    If you are hiking on one of the shuttle biker trails you are using an illegal trail and are therefore part of the problem as well.
    I'm not sure this is helpful to the cause...

    Whomever has an account needs to correct the author that bikes do not "blaze trails" while they are going down the mountain. It's fairly impossible. Even with a bulldozer...

    I am now considering starting an account to post this.

    When I am out riding I say things like hello or good morning/afternoon to people I see and if they preemptively yield trail I certainly always give a thanks. I would say I think this is true for others but I know it is since observe others behaving the same way daily. Nearly always the people I see out the forest are as happy to be out in the forest as I am! Seeing another person has positive impact or no net impact on the experience. I would say this is especially true for the Flagstaff area. Guess I should never take all this positive energy for granted.

    I am not worried about this article having any real impact as I know riders in this community prove this stereo type wrong all the time.

    I guess that is why I find this womans bit so offensive! It is a struggle for me to come up with times I can recall where I have been in the elden area and encountered some one being a dick. She makes it sound like sierra club hikers have a huge chip on there shoulder and that gravity riders are a bunch of D-bags. See this is why this article has a great capacity to offend any reasonable person in the area (and yes reasonable people are the majority around here).

    Sarah King - I hope you can find some joy in your life and muster a friendly hello as I ride by but if you cant thats cool its not going to even effect my attitude or my day...

    Google her, she is very involved with the local Sierra Club chapter and yeah, it just sounds like opinionated hate and personal emotion based on zero facts. Haters gonna hate!
