    now you are assuming that the horse thought the noise was a rampaging cow..... that escalated quickly.

    Escalated? Are you joking? Because I sure was.

    cjsb is flying down a mountain at warp speed with a cowbell clanging madly, blocked from the horse's view by a rise, horse thinks it's some crazy super cow coming at it......... ok so maybe not a very good joke.

    I was joking, hence the reason I used that term, perhaps I should of just posted this instead... ;-)

    I laughed without an explanation, but then again Iím a Seinfeld / Far Side fan.

    Where I've been riding there are signs that say "dogs must be leashed" yet nobody does it. Had a few wipeouts due to some dog that came flying out in front with not even a "you ok?" from the owners.

    Then there are bikers who just think they rule the trail, descending directly at you while your trying to huff and puff up hill, and those that couldn't even be bothered to say thanks or hi, morning or thanks when you get off your bike and out of their way up hill.

    I was once even told by one guy that I shouldn't go down a trail cause his buddy was on it, so I waited, and waited 20 mins go by and the guy goes to check on his buddy and never shows up again.

    There used to be a time when anyone who was around another person doing the same sport was hospitable and nice, now it's just like being on the highway in a car surrounded by more a$$hats who think that their uber expensive bike grants them a pass to be a dink to everyone else on the trail.

    I ran over a dog (leg) last week. Was riding on the right side of a wide fire-road type trail on the return. "Trail" is around 10 feet wide, it's an access road for powerlines that has evolved into a popular out-n-back route. Two riders were going the opposite way on the left. Normal traffic. At the last second, a dog shoots out from the underbrush on the right (my) side to cross over to the left to join the two people. There was nothing i could do and I ran right into it and ran over it's leg. Big lab. Felt bad for the dog because the humans were such idiots.

    In my experience, there are many nice, thoughtful people out there. But it's the jerks we remember the most. And there's no shortage of them, to be sure. In my dotage I'm unfailingly courteous on the trails, but in my younger days I remember forgetting my manners s couple of times.

    MTBers are disproportionately young males oozing testosterone , well - we all know how they can be at times.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    Yeah, I'm getting used to getting either run off the trail heading up hill by someone flying down, or having a dog jump out randomly at me. Funny part was that I ran into the same a$$hat again on another trail on the same day and was heading up hill when he was coming down, I got off my bike as he had no intention of stopping and I bowed, and said "pardon me my leige".

    It's hard to not let the rest of the ride get ruined by people like that but it seems that where I bike, it is pretty common.

    Probably time to either find a new place to ride or find a different hobby.

    Maybe you should get the F out of my way?





    Seriously, this is not an issue on my local trails much. Lots of trails, many, especially my favourites are directional, either signed or in practice. Even though it's a very popular mtb spot, we didn't see many riders today, and none going the opposite direction we were.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    That's good to hear because I am coming your way soon. Armed with my brand new bike. And money in hand to buy you beers for letting me in on the local treasures...

    Good to know I am not going to get mowed down on the ups.
