    Did you throw your leg over a bike one day and
    say.......Now! I am a free rider. I have often wondered
    about the mentality of said dudes. People that DH are
    often very fast going down hills. People that ride XC are
    pretty good at going up hills. Free riders are neither
    one of these. With a few exceptions of the professional
    ranks. Just what the hell does free riding have to do
    with trail advocacy? They don't use trails. At least the
    DHrs use trails. Why are land managers catering to these
    knuckle heads? I like to consider my self gravity
    appropriate. I have a big travel bike. I can stay on the
    trail. There are still sections that I can't clean up, or
    down. But I stay on the trail. I build trail. Just what
    the F**K does free riding do for me? I know it doesn't
    help me get new areas to ride.

    Valid questions all, but you do know it's just another
    chincy marketing tool, don't you?
