    420 and Mountain Biking

    I may be showing my age here, but back in the the 90's and early 2000's it seemed that it was the thing to do to blaze up and ride and stop in the middle of the ride and blaze up again. Is it just me or is it just not PC to spark up on the trail and offer your fellow rider a hit of the green, or just to spark up on the trail at all?

    I personally don't smoke like I used to since life's responsibilities have over taken my pleasures and I just can't function as well on the bike like I used to when I am high, especially with the weed that is out today. Wow! But I go on many group rides and go to places that are very popular with the local MTB seen in the Bay Area and I just don't see it like I used to. Mind you, back in the 90's I was riding mainly El Dorado County and Placer and Tahoe area.

    Puff, puff give and let me know if I am just blind or if I am living in the past man!

    Peace out.

    You're behind the times, mountain biking's gone mainstream and the big words are accessibility, sustainability and advocacy.

    None of which go very well when you light up a doob in a public place! Ah well, everyone has to grow up sometime.

    No one I ride with smokes and I prefer it that way. I would definitely have a couple words for someone that asks me to stop a ride to get a couple tokes in. And that's a fairly young person's opinion.

    smoke it if you got it. most of my biking friends don't smoke, so i take care of it on my time while riding with them. unless of course i'm with my smoker friends, then we just do whatever, whenever...

    I don't smoke (anymore) but I say have at it. Its no worse than drinking craft beer at the trailhead.

    I like to smoke, but not when I ride. It makes me feel weak on the climbs and really timid on the downhills. I know plenty who can rip both up and down on the weed, though.

    While at home watching a movie with the wife and eating a good meal, now that's a fine time.

    I don't drink though, so to each their own.

    Interesting answers and responses. As I mentioned before, it is not my thing anymore since I kind of graduated from that stage in my life and other things replaced it. A person posted that it is no different than drinking craft beer, in which I totally agree with as well, even though I do not drink alcohol. I foresee the state of California along with other states in the union legalizing Marijuana in the coming two years and going the route of Washington and Colorado. It would be foolish to not foresee two "grass-roots" pastimes not coming together such as other industries have already.

    Our trails are technical due to lack of elevation and I'm no fan of paranoidial freakout tech riding so I wait till I'm done.

    "Create drama"? Get over yourself buddy, this is a Forum where everyone's opinion matters. Even yours. No one is trying to create "drama". Just informative dialogue within the MTB community.

    Drought, forest fire, MUT where it's not socially acceptable... aside from that. No problem. Nobody I know smokes when they ride but on trail maintenance days when we're not using gas powered equipment it happens occasionally.
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    the part where you quoted something you misunderstood and then posted an ******* song in response, leads some of us to believe otherwise..

    I know many who do, though they usually wait until after to blaze and have a beer.
    How can anyone who's been riding as long as I have, be so slow???

    Only 2 times in all the rides I've been on the past couple years have I smelled anyone getting high. I'm not interested in that for myself, but I don't care if others do.

    Mixing riding and 4:20 is for stoners only for the most part. Having said that, edibles and riding are awesome in my experience. Instant "in the zone" and pain doesn't hurt so bad. Edibles, Black Sabbath, and Night Riding is a religious experience.

    MTB riding is potentially dangerous and riding technical trails requires a lot of focus. I prefer to have my cognitive functions un-compromised when I ride and I hope that the people I share the trails with have similar concerns.

    Its still illegal in 48 states. I work for the state of Utah's Counter Drug Program. You won't get a pass lighting up around me while mountain biking.

    I personally never had a problem maintaining control while toked up. However that all depends on the individual
