View Full Version : Mojo Riding
July 21st, 2003, 12:22 PM
Im a twenty-one year old serious mountain biker who has been riding at shnipsit state forest for the past ten years, i know these trails like the back of my hand. I ride with my father who had a serios case of bad mojo yesterday which caused some harsh riding for himself. I on the other hand see mountain biking as the only place where every other care in the world melts away. Its almost become a spirtual adventure each and every time that im out on my bike, getting in tune with myself and nature. And im all about keeping everything in line with the natural surroundings and not ruining the wilderness. BUT it really pisses me off when i see powergel wrappers and reflectors and broken pieces of rear gear protectors on the ground. I emplore those riders who dont have enough common sense to leave the trails as they find them to do so, because you dont want me to see you messing up the wilderness. I will tool on your sorry a$$e$.

I agree entirely with your anger here....but Please use caution as you never know who might be mountain biking with a very large and nastey chip on thier shoulder and you might find the mtbing in jail or the "after life" to be some what disappointing. But as a longtime outdoor lover all the wrappers and Dunkindonutz cups and freaking Mcydees bags in general have always really pizzed me off. This aggravation can be counterproductive to the primary point of me going out in the first place. I to go out to find peace and serenity.....a sence of spiritual balance, not just to try and burn the fat from my gut. People do this nastey stuff everywhere including along the roadsides in the park the mall or where ever they might be standing. I am really glad to hear from someone in your age group speaking out though because wrongly old guys like me often assume it is the younger guys doing this. I also spend a lot of volunteer time cleaning up after these cretins and while I don't regret a minute of it, I do think it gives me a right to preach to them. I wouldn't dump my trash in thier church so why do they feel free to do it in mine. So I guess the best thing to do is use discretion and politely approach the perpertrater if you catch them, and ask them to kindly cart out what they cart in.....
Best of luck
