I am a very simple Mensan.
I really like to learn, so another question for the Physicians among us:
The point I find interesting, is that acceleration, or in this case mostly deceleration, loads the front tire of the bike disproportionately. So, in my simple mind, this greater FORCE, applied over a smaller area (the front tire) coupled with excessive shear (mentioned by Crossfitta) means there is a lot of destructive force applied to the tundra. Seemingly different in some way from the way force is applied by a hiker at least in terms of scale.
Not that I have an issue with bikers.
EDIT: Funny pic of Tebow. I like Tebow even though he's religulous. John Elway is currently the biggest problem with Denver Broncos football. That dude's massive ego needs to be retired.
