Yup! No doubt about it, we need government regulation to have all branches removed from Mountain Bike trails.

That ought to keep them busy for a few years.

Worst Nightmare...

We lost a buddy, after being gored by a dead Manazanita tree branch thru the neck and carotid artery, in a crash. Nothing worse than to see an experienced, veteran biker bleed-out, while we helplessly await a Life Flight Helicopter....
