Bicyclists claim to want equal treatment, but I haven't heard any of
them asking to be required to file an accident report when they have
an injury-causing accident, the way motor vehicle drivers are required
to do so!!! Maybe that requirement would help the authorities properly
assess the impacts of mountain biking!

Subject: Doug Walsh steppin' up

As the head of the ride leader development program Doug doesn't just
talk, he walks the walk.

Only an hour into yesterday's Dungeness ride we had a rider (sorry I
didn't quite catch his name) slide out on a moss slick wooden bridge
and
crack a rib. I came upon the scene with Doug, and I he didn't even
hesitate in volunteering to walk out with the rider and take him to
the
clinic for the rest of the afternoon.

Yes it had to be done but still difficult to give up your sunny day
ride
in the Olympics after organizing the ride and getting up early and
taking the ferry etc.

Way to go Doug and I hope the injured rider is going to be okay,
although he probably won't be mountain biking for several weeks if he
did indeed break a rib in his upper back area.

Mike, how did you travel to these international conferences?

Don't avoid my question.

How does that answer my question? Have you ever ridden off-road?

Just wondering how hypocrtitical you are. Mountain bikers LOVE to
attack anyone who tells the truth about their selfish, destructive
sport, rather than stick to the subject: the harm that mountain biking
does.

When you asked "are you a mountain biker" and I write "No," that
unequivocally answers your question. I have an old Bridgestone touring
bicycle, not suited for any off road riding.

I've already told you I am not a mountain biker. Are you going to
answer my question or are you going to continue to play this silly
game that my elementary students used to play?

Your answer makes no sense. I have no idea what "Bridgestone RB-T" is,
and what relation that has to mountain biking.

That doesn't answer my question: Have you ever ridden a bicycle off-
road? Why are you playing coy?

Jesus Christ, Mike. He's answered your questions. He owns
a road bike. He stated flatly that he's not a mountain
biker. Has he ever ridden off-road? That was not the
original question. Have you ever ridden your bike across
your lawn? Then you have ridden off-road. Knock off the
bully tactics. Or is that how you get people to agree with
your point of view?

Saint, my ass. That's for you Ed. You may be a saint
but Mikey sure isn't.

What part of "I have an old Bridgestone touring bicycle, not suited
for any off road riding" did not make sense to you?
No, I have never ridden off-road, I own a touring bicycle that is used
on roads for long distance touring.

No, I have never ridden off-road, I have no reason or desire to, end
of question.

How did you get to the dozen international conferences where you
presented your scientific papers?

Why are you avoiding answering my question by playing silly games?

So what was the original question? Bill Weir is a scalawag who poses
irrelevant questions which only an idiot would ever want to answer.

Hey, how about this Bill ... how many times a week do you fuck your wife?
Now there is an original question that you ought to be able wrap your
minuscule mind around since it is on the lowest level possible. What it has
to do with mountain bikers I leave to you.

> Saint, my ass. That's for you Ed. You may be a saint

My Saintliness has been remarked upon by all Minnesotans, most of whom are
the greatest sinners imaginable. All Minnesotans are going to Hell for their
liberal views and only Saint Edward the Great will be going to Heaven! It is
also possible that TibetanMonkey, that redoubtable Floridian, will also be
going to Heaven, even though he, like me, is an atheist. Strange indeed are
ways of God!

Then why are you supporting mountain bikers, by aping their habit of
attacking PEOPLE, instead of addressing the subject of the
newsgroup???

How is that relevant to mountain biking impacts, the subject of the

It's taking forever for you to answer my question as to how you
traveled to the dozen international conferences you wrote that you
went to. Why is that? Are you afraid your answer will not be conducive
to being concerned for the environment?

No where have I attacked anyone and I have not supported mountain
biking. If you want to be taken seriously, you need to stop making
things up. The subject of the newsgroup I am posting in is
sci.environment. Did you by chance forget how many groups you are
cross posting to?

It's as relevant as you asking me if I have ever used a motor vehicle
and relevent to the newsgroup I am posting in.

Now, how did you get to the dozen international conferences you claim

The subject of rec.backcountry is NOT mountain biking impacts per se.

No, it doesn't! This is all you said: "Bridgestone RB-T". You did NOT
say "I have an old Bridgestone touring bicycle, not suited

Not really. It is a personal attack. Ad hominem. By someone who
admitted using an automobile, making it hypocritical.

Yes it does and my link shows it does. Stop playing childish games.

Please show where I claim that? Go ahead, I'll wait. The archives do
not lie. You're confusing me, Bill Weir, with Bruce Jenson who
mentioned rec.backcountry . Please try and keep track of who is
posting.

Questions are not attacks and this use of "DUH" is something that
grade school children do. Please try and keep the conversation on an
adult level, shall we? Thanks.

I said I used a motor vehicle which is a Honda reflex, not an
automobile. Nothing hypocritical about using a scooter as I am not in
here advocating going car free or motor vehicle free.

It is when the subject is such a universally-recognized pain in the

The only pain in the ass here is you. Get a life if that is possible.

Why are you being so coy?

I have never seen any kind of public transit that connects the United
States to international destinations other than a trolly that went
into to Canada, but that ened in the 1930's and I'm not even sure it
was a public venture.

Did you fly to any conferences? Are you so afraid of answering my
question that you had to resort to playing games and calling me a liar
when I clearly wasn't? What are you hiding?
