    I like riding SoMo but must say hikers stop in the worst places where you can't stop and just stand there. I know we share the paths but its hard to stop the bike in some of those sections and the hikers will not move left or right even if yell. If you tell them 3 more behind they get right back in the trail. I seem to see this a lot there while other places people just wait for the next 3 to pass. At the same time we wait if we see hikers coming through to start the section we are about to go down. We also ride with cow bells so people know coming.

    I ride out there quite a bit and actually have not had trouble with hikers stopping in bad spots. Mountain bikers on the other hand tend to stop in bad spots out there and dont move which is very anoying. The only trouble with hikers that I have had are the ones who where headphones. People really need to stop wearing them on the trails..

    They do these in the summer when it's too hot to wear all those icky clothes? I may make an exception to my never take unnecessary steps rule.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.
