Blockin' out the Scenery, Breakin' my Mind

And the sign said anybody caught trespassin' would be shot on sight

So I jumped on the fence and I yelled at the house, "Hey! What gives you the right?

"To put up a fence to keep me out or to keep mother nature in"

"If God was here he'd tell you to your face, Man, you're some kinda sinner"

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind

Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

- OB with a bike that can go anywhere, but she's not allowed....

I hope you don't put a sign on your blog that says, "And the sign says you got to have a membership card to get inside-Uh!!" Loved the FMEB.

Dang, did you lose access to a trail? That makes my stomach hurt!

Linda said...

Agreed, FMEB probably rode too!

@HWB -- didn't lose a trail, but it's tough to find a great place to drive the fatbike close to the city. The singletrack around here is tight because it makes great use of small spaces, but it's more fun on a nimble mtb with some suspension. Some of the best fatbike fun is on fire roads, hiking trails, horse trails, beaches, and multiuse trails but our county parks are pretty specific. I guess they're justified--in the past when mountain biking was allowed on hilly xc ski trails, it did cause a ton of erosion and gullies (however the fatbike doesn't make a dent). And, I suppose a bicycle would cause issues with horses.

Nice post!
Consider yourself lucky also.
Why you ask??
The 4"' tires really throw up the dog bombs, earlier this spring, I can only imagine how high they'd throw the horse super bombs!!

Sometimes you just have to go rogue and damn the torpedoes.
