Re: “Danehy

I misattributed a comment to Alec Swanson. Sorry, it was Heavyboots.

Re: “Danehy

While I appreciate Mr. Danehy's support, some of his comments still seem a little silly. I have been night riding for years. It's just like riding during the day except with lights. The liability is the same, the rocks are the same, the cactus are the same. The average person is scared of the desert or the woods at night, but it's a great time to be out. It's quiet and cooler.

I've even been injured on a night ride, broke my collar bone. I rode back to the car, got a little help getting my bike on the rack and drove home. There were no lawsuits. When I got hurt during the day it was exactly the same story.

Alec Swanson's idea that mountain bikers are getting caught up in an action to prevent partiers from using the parking lot strikes me as likely. The presence of legitimate users (of any variety) will drive away illegitimate users.
