Not sure where you get that. I skied last Friday and conditions were pretty good. Better than the day before, in fact, when it was wet and rainy. Conditions for skiing vary by temperature, but a...
I don't disagree with that at all. There's only a small window and then it might as well be pavement anyway.
That's fine. Sorry for hijacking. I can just end it instead.
I don't know. I'm just saying. I don't think I'd go to the point of calling it a "lie," that's all.
I'm glad I got to ski a little bit. I'm glad the trails are mostly clear now. Let's continue to...
If you want me to explain, I'll be happy to.
No, ski-pulled! ;)
I don't know if all skiers agree.
Okay. So would you be happy to leave the trails untouched for a few days after snow so skiers can use them, and then plow them?
I didn't see a lumpy mess of pavement in the photo. But no matter.
Okay. I hope we understand each other better.
I don't think I'm picking fights. What I'm doing is pointing out that if we expect motorists not to express themselves this way - and get very made when they do - we need to be precise...
No, it's what you sounded like. Even if you didn't mean to.
It sure sounded like it. You're basically saying your mode is more important so you should be catered to. Just like motorists who dismiss cyclists who ride on the roads.
I agree. Maybe you...
Yes, telling people to wear helmets does make them safer, in and of itself.
Exactly. THAT is the cop-out argument. Doesn't mean that recommending a helmet or noting that a helmet can make you...
So now you're telling skiers how to have fun? How about you let the skiers worry about how they cross roads.
I skied to the Metro to get to work last Friday on a trail. I managed to cross the...
It CAN be a cop-out argument. It's not always. One shouldn't always jump to assume the worst in every situation, that doesn't help anyone.
Welcome to the forum.
I think our new members' point is not that there is a legal requirement for any of this, but that he thinks it would be safer.
There are different schools of thought on...
In "the big one" a few years back, it took 4 days for our cul-de-sac to get plowed. This time the plows got to us by mid-afternoon the first day.
I agree with all of that.
Yes, it's easily destroyed. About 1/3rd or more of road costs come from general revenues, not the gas tax or other user taxes. That means cyclists probably pay MORE than their share when you consider...
That's great, but for now, they're still shooting, so the helmet is one way I can help keep my fate in my own hands. To mix the metaphor.
Imagine the next step - skiing down the W&OD with a bike strapped to his back.
Damn skiers should get off the trails!
Damn cyclists should get off the roads!
Yeah, to school - no helmet, headphones, strategy for keeping hands warm is to keep them in his back pockets and ride hands-free rather than just bringing gloves - definitely a teenager. (I am now...
Yep. Baseball cap, headphones, jeans, road bike. You must have been close behind me. (I presume I was ahead, since I'm soooo damn fast).
