    4 years ago Comments: What these people dont understand is... Shutting down existing trails only pushes people to ride illegally. I know I do. And it just makes people a lot less likely to obey any rules when you know that there are people who have no understanding of why you enjoy something so much are just trying to do their best to stop you. Besides that everytime and area is shut down because it causes damage, you usually see that same area turned into a real estate developement within a few years!
