I am currently sitting at work. The guy in the next cube saw the article. When he was a kid, a friend got decapitated by a piece of wire stretched across a trail (this occurred in Georgia in the late '70's). The victim was leading the pack, as usual per my cube neighbor. The others came up on him immediately after the fact. I remember reading about this years ago, never thought someone I actually would end up knowing was involved. He quit riding right then and there, pity. So watch out for nutzoid property owners (who generally just own the property next door) and the idiot eco-warriors who don't think 3 seconds into the future while trying to "preserve" it in their minds.

My God. I may know this person. Ask if the Kid grew up in Peachtree City. Sometime around '78-'80 the accident happened while he was riding a single trail path somewhere around Line Creek by the county line I think.

What do you mean global warming is caused by the sun? The UN says that we humans are causing it.



Al Gore for president......oh wait.

I'm a long-time environmental supporter. I believe we need to protect the wild areas for posterity, and I believe that strongly.



Actively sabotaging trails and/or other off-road venues is criminal ethically as well as legally. If people are using the area legally as intended then that's it. If they are breaking laws, then the proper legal authority should be contacted.



Sabotage like this has been common for a long time. Some of it has been justified by saying the people using the area are breaking laws or ordinances. That's not good enough.



Hopefully the courts will pass a sentence that will send a message, and hopefully that gets some news play to spread the word.

Make him ride one of his trails. Set the hounds on his butt too. Their low enough to miss the wires but fast enough to keep him moving.
