an alarming post you should read before your next trail ride

or, "there are shitheads EVERYwhere."
i received an email from a listener at my radio show address, and posted it on my radio show blog. it's rather disturbing, and you can read it here.
bottom line: be careful no matter WHERE you ride.

Kim, there's been numerous incidents on our own inter-urban trails. Last summer one of our group ran through fishing line tied across the posts at the road crossing between Beaver and the MLK Hy-vee. Another had to dodge a basketball thrown at them from the apartments across the street on the same section of trail. Definitely don't assume you're safe just because you're on a trail. Personally, I had a police cruiser come at me from the opposite direction on the Neil Smith trail just north of the old Targhetto location. They were looking for a shoplifter in the area, but definitely caught me off guard with a close call.
