    No good Portrait of a Trail Sanitizer

    As I rode the north foothills this morning, I noticed how nearly every rock, baby head, trail challenge in the lower rock garden (365 south of 230) had been removed. I was cussing them out when I came upon the culprit. He was on FS land, but I've seen the same things going on in the City Open Space.

    Anybody know this old geezer? I ran him off, but he was adamant that he was doing a good thing, and he wouldn't listen to reason. I explained that what he was doing was illegal without forest service approval, that he could get thrown in jail for disturbing any artifacts, and blah blah blah. It was like talking to a wall. I'm guessing the guy was at least 60 years old. I'd like to get his name to turn it in to both the FS and the Open Space to see if they can talk some reason into him. If you see him out there, give him hell.

    I say dart him, relocate him to Gallup, we got plenty of rocks to clean up in the Zuni Mountains.

    Man would think he died and went to heaven.

    Why can't people like him stick to the paved bike path?

    He reminds me of the people who move to NM because it's so unique, then before long they start trying to change it into where ever it is they came from..

    Then the whole place becomes a sanitized cartoon of NM, much like Santa Fe.

    You gotta have smooth trails if you're not gonna wear a helmet. Helmet wearers are so selfish!

    Don't worry I am going to bring the bobcat up there tonight, under the cover of darkness and remove all the friggin' rocks and you guys can stop yer whining, just think how fast that trail will be then. You want rocks? Go find somewhere else to ride.

    Love, Gramps.

    I bit it a couple of weeks ago in that garden (complete with a back full of cacti) and if that rock that I OTB on isn't there, I'm going to hunt that old f*@k down and shove those gloves right up his ass.

    I was out on the north end this morning and saw blue hairs on hover-rounds. Really is a shame.

    Progress

    That "trail sanitizer" is just helping us all out. It'll be a much quicker and simpler process to pave those trails after the rocks are removed.

    I'm all for bringing up some concrete into the NFH. We could remove a few of those rocks layin down some cement then place larger rocks back in place.

    The NFH has really been cleaned over the past several weeks. If the old coot can't ride, tough figure it out or bump up your skills. That is why technical trail features exist for the added challenge.

    He's a long time customer of mine. When I saw the pic I thought wow that looks just like ___ ________! Anyway, he was in the shop today and I asked him if he had any bikes for sale, he asked motor or pedal so I asked if he rode mountain bikes and he proceeded to tell me where he rides (detailed), NFH and then told me how he hated the rocks! I even found out what he rides, the bike in the pic of course. Like the motorized trail usage battle in Otero, I remain Switzerland for I live in two worlds... sad but true.

    Well no wonder he has an issue with rocks, he does not have a helmet. pjlama if he is a customer why don't you sell this guy a decent helmet so our cycling community can keep the NFH trail.
