Strange day @ Boyette
« on: May 16, 2009, 09:22:44 PM »
Some stuff I saw today: Dude riding North Abyss in reverse....without a hemet. Another dude and his girl on south Abyss w/out their lids. Then on Ridgeline there was another guy riding the trail in reverse. At least he had on a helmet. To top the day off, I got to see some fat dude squating down partially hidden behind a tree at the end of Gator Pit. I know when you got to go, there's not much you can do. But at least go further into the woods when taking a growler.
 
Aside from that the trails were in great shape.  :)

The dude and his girl where with me and some others... they where sitting on the bench on South Abyss and they did have helmets with them but probably had them off as they where waiting for the rest of us.... Good thing we missed the guy droppin a deuce.  There where also a  few toolbags riding some of the one way trails in the opposite direction.

Boyette did ride excellent though! Ridgeline is riding so much better than it did after first being opened.  Corkscrew looks sick but appeared to be partially underwater. 15miles of fun!

The couple I saw were actually riding. She had an orange bike and he had a silverish GF.

For whatever reason people that ride their bicycles without helmets don't really seem to bother me too much, especially compared to the people ride motorcycles with no helmet in a pair of shorts and tank top..... Squids.  Those people really annoy the heck out of me.

Now, the guy dropping a load in plain view is just wrong.   ::)

Actually I think what bothered me the most was the dude riding Ridgeline in reverse. That was dangerous to others.
