Will mountain biking be killed off by development or lawyers?
Lawsuit a threat to trails
A personal injury lawyer decides to sue everyone for injuries sustained from crashing his mountain bike on the trails. Wow. A new low even for personal injury lawyers. I crash therefore it's someone else's fault.
It's bad enough that land is being developed at an astonishing pace without planning or regard to anything else except how to get your giant SUV from your garage to Wal-Mart and back, now we have folks suing clubs, towns and trail managers, threatening to shut down access to our little remaining open space.
