Nothing ruins a good ride in the woods quite like a nice piece of trash strategically placed along the trail by the shithead knuckle dragger who couldn't be bothered to pack it out. I see it all too much, trash in the woods that could be so easily kept out of it. Some of the worst offenders around here are coffee cups from Tim Horton's. I see it play out in my head... some asshole strolling along the trail with their extra large double double dickweed special, finishing it off then thinking to themselves "f*ck it" while they causally toss it into the bushes. Out of sight out of mind right? Well f*ck you Mr. Litterbug. Nothing says 'piss on mother nature' as nicely as your lazy ass firing off your crap into the woods. I really hope you get struck by lightning or a tree falls on your head.
I live by the motto 'pack out what you pack in', meaning take your trash back out with you. This is especially true with spare tubes. I see them tossed along the trail too. WTF is with that? You brought a spare with you in your pack / seat bag / jersey pocket, why can't you take your punctured tube back out? I've picked up quite a few of these and patched them myself and used them as spares / given them away to riders in need of a tube along the trail. I try to collect a bit of garbage each ride out too.
I don't get pissed about trash in the bush only either. Just a few days ago I watched a Supreme-Douche-Wad empty the contents of their vehicle ash tray while stopped at a traffic light. The idea of getting out of my vehicle, dragging the shithead out their door and making them eat the cigarette butts off the pavement was appealing at first although the thought passed after I realized that it would not end well for either party and in their eyes I would be an asshole.
Another good one in my town in particular is the scoping of dog shit into a baggie, then tossing the baggie off into the woods. Really? Why not just take a stick and flick it off the trail then? Don't want to carry dog shit? Don't own a dog!
I'm convinced that some people would eventually drown in their own garbage and filth rather than take the effort to put trash in its place. Ever seen the show Hoarding: Buried Alive?
So you have all been given fair warning, if you litter on the trail, The Bric is coming for you. I'll be carrying a claw hammer and galvanized nails to permanently attach your trash to your hands.
The Bric...._ mountain biker, road rider, heavyweight gear abuser. Built like a brick sh*thouse. No bike is safe.
