Did you Ever go around a gate?
I ride quite a bit on forest service roads of north Georgia, southeast Tennessee, and western North Carolina. During these rides, I have noted many, many gated roads and trails. Presumably these gates are property of the Forest Service, or TVA, or some other federal agency, who maintains them, and decides when to open or close them.
Anyhow, in many cases, a person on foot, or on a dual sport, could easily go around a closed gate. But I am wondering what the risks are if a person should go around a closed gate to continue the ride.
