OK. I realise the tours have cleaners that would follow the riders up. But what message does it give? You have riders growing through some pretty amazing country, and guys are throwing rubbish, like they are important, like they are more important than the landscape.
People go on and on about role models taking drugs, banging on about how drugs are bad for the user and 'send a bad message'. What message does throwing your protein bar wrapper and drink bottle into the stream, send to the kids?
