Closing Trails

Last time, I wrote about trails being paved. But as the sport of mountain biking becomes more and more popular, there are cases when bikers make mistakes causing ire among locals. This misunderstanding causes closure of trails. Take the case of the Holy Trail, this used to be open to bicycle riders, but recently, a biker crashed into a bystander near the trail end. This prompted the village head to close the trail to bikers. This kind of misunderstanding could have been prevented if the rider alighted his bike and walked when there are a number of people inside the trail.
Bikers, let's be careful and tread lightly.
