Anything specific to off-road riding.

I was under the impression that mountain bikes are for mountains, not the local tow path. Perhaps that's the best place for them :D

Mountain bike is a marketing term. There's nothing that makes it unsuitable for use elsewhere. I preferred the old term ATB All Terrain Bicycle. They can be very versatile bikes and I bet most never see action in the mountains

Abstain ... because our countryside should be for everybody to enjoy and we need to be considerate to all users.

So often on this forum there are "anti-motor vehicles" posts blaming drivers for anything and everything. Now we are "blaming" dog walkers and "blaming" horse riders. It is sounding like cyclists want everybody else to just get off everything and everywhere and have everything turned over for the exclusive use of cyclists.

A disappointing question.

I couldn't agree more with this sentiment.

Why do you assume that I do not? The encounters I was referring to happened at walking pace. And I'm not a mountain biker!
