The US Forest Service rulings designate hiking and off-road cycling
together. ATVs, 4X4s and motorcycles fall into a seperate management
category.
Since hiking and cycling are classified together, then it is within the
designation of cooperation for cyclists and hikers to band together in
cooperation to make sure the rules concerning motorized use be adhered to.
Since you continue to apply the same tactics terrorists use to divide
opinion and avoid actual scrutiny, you fail to grasp your own loss in the
larger scope of cooperation, access and shared use.

I'm sure I asked but I don't own any dogs so the brand names didn't stick.
I do recall his saying it was wise to research the brands because most
contain viscera and ground-up cancerous tumors, among other unpleasant
things.

OTOH, did you see that "SupersizeMe" episode in which Spurlock subsisted
on nothing but hamburgers for a month? He gained 30 pounds,
developed an abnormal liver, and of course his cholesterol levels headed
for the moon.

Yes. Disturbing. I think his
health is still not back to
normal.
