I just heard today from someone who knows the victim that a man was turned into a quadriplegic by a mountain biker running into him. He (the victim) was a rocket scientist, just out for a hike.

And mountain bikers say we are being "selfish", not wanting to share the trails with large pieces of speeding machinery?!

(Of course, the man's name is confidential.)
