Nice article, thanks for posting the link. :)
EDIT: Although unsuspended does have a point.
You see three kinds of people as you leave the gondola. Tourists ride up to look at the views and then ride back down. A few who are a touch more adventurous walk down. As a bike rider, I glance at these people with a condescending air, and they in turn view me, I imagine, as a heroic adventurer or, more probably, an old goat of a fool who should know better.
Sorry but; what a loser! He views hikers with a 'condescending air' after riding himself and bike up the lift?
Then there are the really serious bikers with battered equipment and mud-smeared pads, looking cocky and confident. While I'm sure they feel themselves worthy of unabashed admiration, I view them as irresponsible idiots good only for providing body parts to the more civilized members of society. There is definitely a pecking order at the top of this mountain
Again, what a tool and a Snob. He brought his snobbie roadie attitude right to the downhilling world.
