    Music
    Is it just me or do others find it extremely annoying when people recreating on public lands play music such that others nearby can also hear their music? It seems I encounter it most on the Winsor trail in the Santa Fe area.

    Why would you live in a metropolitan location if you dislike other people's habits? Just wondering... seems like a setup for major stress related health problems. Moving farther away from it all is the move I would bust. :)

    It used to bother me, but now it doesn't. If they're out riding and having fun, I'll call out a "what's up?" and go on my separate way. I would rather they listen to tunes on a Bluetooth rattle can than with earphones that leave them truly oblivious to the other trail users around them. Personally though, I prefer the sound of rolling treads and my own labored breathing when I'm out riding.

    I'd rather encounter someone listening to music than the grumpy old white-beard hikers who say things like "technology will kill us all!" when they see a bicyclist ~ to which I responded "some people it already has." I didn't have music playing, he was clearly upset about seeing someone with a bike on a multi-use trail that runs aside a wilderness area.
