There has been a discussion taking place on the Singletracks.com forums about various random objects that we have found while out mountain biking. During one of my rides this past weekend, I came across one of the most random and intriguing pieces of trail decoration that I've ever seen:
I posted it to the forums as I thought it was very interesting, and I was eager to hear if anyone knew the story behind it.
GoldenGoose offered this possible explanation:
There was a guy who is a regular over on the SORBA forums that slammed into a tree up there on one of the pinhoti sections and had to be taken out by medics because of a bad neck injury. He put it there in commemoration of being back on the bike. I believe I remember reading that the actual tree that did the damage has since been cut down.If that's where this neck brace came from, that's a dang good story... and a fitting memorial!
