SLOW DOWN AND STAY RIGHT!
Live to ride another day - you and others.
Sad news from our neighbors area:I hope to never ever see a match to this glove on any trail. EVER! I am mad because some people still don't understand the meaning of the stay right signs. I am mad because people still brag about how fast their sled is. I am mad because people still gauge their trips by how many miles they put on in a day. All of these senseless things increase the possibility of more of these gloves found on the trail. What will it take for people to understand that? 2 people lost their lives on our trail Monday night. Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of the individuals and our deepest thanks to those who rushed out and tried their best to save these individuals. This was preventable on all kinds of levels. Please use more common sense! Ride RIGHT, ride SAFE, and live to ride again.

Well said Will! It is truly unfortunate that there are those that ride with total disregard for what might be around the next bend. Our condolences to the families of those involved.

I wish they would sets speeds on the trails just like on the roads. If you want to race go to a track. More power to ya. Otherwise slow on the trails so you can enjoy the scenery. You can't tell me you see anything at 70 plus out there.

I've just always wondered why there are not more 1 way trails. I mean to just widen the trails 5 ft or so would allow enough room on most trails to make it 1 way. The groomer can make natural median. I'm sure it would cost some extra money but would make it way safer sport.. just my thoughts! Prayers to the family's!

That sure I an awful site!! God bless the families!
