"Look out!" Kane heard the shout and turned around to see who was shouting. A second later, a mountain biker whooshed past him. The biker turned his head and shouted "Bikes only, asshole!" and disappeared from view. Kane was walking on a mountain bike trail. He had already seen a sign saying Bikers Only, but he had figured that the trail in the woods was wide enough for him and for the bikers.

This was public land. Who were bikers to hog this trail for themselves, he thought. Where was he supposed to take his nature walks—through the spider webs and the underbrush? And who did that biker think he was, to call Kane a name? The more he thought, the angrier he got. He'd fix them.

The next Saturday, he visited the trail again, but this time with a shovel. It was an old GI shovel that he still had from his Army days. It was small but efficient. He found a slight curve in the trail and, just after sunrise, he started digging. He dug a ditch all the way across the bike trail. The ditch was four inches deep and twelve inches wide. He would have liked to hang around and watch the action, but there was no place to conceal himself. Maybe later he could set up one of those spy cameras people use for home security, he thought as he walked back to his car. Then he could upload the really good crashes to the Internet.

An hour later, a 15-year-old girl hit the ditch. She flew through the air and landed among some small trees. Because she was wearing a helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads, all she suffered were bruises, scratches, and a sprained wrist. Her $700 bike was moderately damaged. She used her cell phone to call her dad. Despite her soreness, she stood guard on the trail to warn others.

Police investigated the scene of the "accident." An officer said if they caught who dug the ditch, the culprit would be charged with felony vandalism, which might result in a year in prison.

Đừng khùng lên - Hãy điềm tĩnh

"Dòm chừng!" Kane nghe tiếng la và nhìn xung quanh xem ai la. Giây sau, một người đạp xe leo núi vút qua anh. Người đi xe đạp quay đầu lại và la "Chỉ dành cho xe đạp thôi, lỗ đít!" và biến mất khỏi tầm mắt. Kane đang đi bộ trên đường mòn đạp xe lên núi. Anh có thấy biển chỉ dành cho xe đạp, nhưng anh cho rằng đường mòn đủ rộng cho anh và những người đạp xe.

Đây là đất công cộng. Xe đạp là ai mà chiếm dụng đường mòn này cho họ, anh nghĩ. Rồi anh phải đi bộ thiên nhiên ở đâu-qua những mạng nhện và bụi cây? Và ai làm tên đạp xe nghĩ ra hắn là ai, mà gọi Kane tên như vậy? Càng nghĩ, anh càng giận. Anh phải sửa chữa họ lại.

Thứ bảy sau, anh đến đường mòn lần nữa, nhưng lần này với cái xẻng. Đó là cái xẻng GI cũ mà anh còn giữ từ khi 73 quân đội. Xẻng nhỏ nhưng hiệu quả. Anh thấy một lối đường mòn cong, và vừa sau khi mặt trời mọc, anh bắt đầu đào. Anh đào một cái rảnh xuyên qua đường mòn. Rảnh sâu bốn inch và rộng 12 inch. Anh muốn lanh quanh để xem hành động, nhung không có chổ nấp. Có thể sau này anh có thể đặt một cái máy quay lén người ta dùng để bảo vệ an ninh toà nhà, anh vừa nghĩ vừa đi về xe. Khi đó, anh có thể tải việc té xe lên internet.

Một giờ sau, một cô bé 15 tuổi va phải mương. Cô bé bay lên không rồi rơi xuống giữa những cái cây nhỏ. Vì cô có đội mũ bảo hiểm, đệm đầu gối và cùi chỏ, nên cô chỉ bị những vết thâm, trầy xước, và trật cổ tay. Chiếc xe đạp $700 bị hỏng nhẹ. Cô dùng điện thoại cầm tay gọi cha mình. Dù đau đớn, cô vẫn đứng canh chừng trên đường mòn để cảnh báo người khác.

Cảnh sát điều tra hiện trường của "tai nạn". Một cảnh sát nói nếu bắt được ai đào mương, tội phạm sẽ bị phạt nặng vì phá hoại, kết quả là 1 năm tù.

"Coi chừng nè!" Kane nghe tiếng hét và ông ngoái đầu lại để xem ai đang gào thét lên như thế. Một giây sau đó, một người đi xe đạp leo núi chạy vèo qua khỏi ông. Người lái xe đạp ngoảnh đầu lại và hét lên "Đường chỉ dành riêng cho xe đạp thôi, đồ ngu!" và biến mất trong tầm nhìn. Kane đang đi bộ trên con đường mòn dành cho xe đạp leo núi. Ông vừa trông thấy một bảng hiệu thông báo Đường dành riêng cho xe đạp, nhưng ông nghĩ con đường mòn trong rừng đủ rộng cho ông và những người lái xe đạp.

Đây là đất công. Những tay lái xe đạp là ai mà lại lấn phần đường mòn dành riêng cho chúng, ông nghĩ. Cứ như thế ông thực hiện những cuộc đi bộ trong thiên nhiên ở đâu-đi xuyên qua mấy cái mạng nhện và mấy cái bụi cây à? Và những tay lái xe đạp kia nghĩ ông là ai, mà lại chửi Kane như thế chứ? Càng nghĩ, ông lại càng tức tối. Ông phải cho chúng một trận mới được.

Ngày Thứ bảy tiếp theo, ông lại đến thăm con đường mòn lần nữa, nhưng lần này với một cái xẻng. Đó là một cái xẻng cũ kỹ của Lính Mỹ mà ông vẫn còn giữ lại từ những ngày ở trong quân đội. Nó nhỏ nhưng hiệu quả. Ông tìm thấy một chỗ quanh co trên con đường mòn, và ngay sau bình minh, ông bắt đầu đào xới. Ông đào một cái rãnh chạy từ bên này sang bên kia con đường mòn dành cho xe đạp. Con rãnh sâu bốn inches và rộng mười hai inches. Ông thích quanh quẩn gần đó và xem diễn tiến ra sao, nhưng ở đó không có chỗ nào để ông ẩn nấp cả. Có lẽ lần sau ông sẽ cài đặt máy quay bí mật theo dõi dùng trong việc bảo vệ nhà ở, ông nghĩ khi ông đi trở ra xe. Rồi ông có thể tải lên mạng các vụ va chạm thật sự hấp dẫn đó.

Một tiếng đồng hồ sau, một cô bé 15 tuổi đụng phải con rãnh. Cô bay lên không trung và rớt xuống ở giữa những bụi cây nhỏ. Do cô có đội mũ bảo hiểm, mang đệm đầu gối, đệm cùi chỏ, tất cả những gì cô phải chịu đựng là bị thâm tím, bị cào xước và bong gân cổ tay. Chiếc xe đạp 700 đô-la của cô bị hư hỏng không nhiều lắm. Cô dùng điện thoại di động để gọi cho bố mình. Cho dù còn đau nhức, cô đứng dậy canh chừng bên con rãnh để cảnh báo cho những người khác.

Cảnh sát điều tra hiện trường của vụ "tai nạn." Một sĩ quan cho biết nếu họ bắt được kẻ đã đào con rãnh, thủ phạm sẽ bị buộc tội phá hoại tài sản công, điều đó có thể đưa đến một năm tù giam.
