Im a bike lover and it is my main transport other than work.
Some stereotyping there. That does not describe all bike riders. In fact, only a minority. You are not rushing, jumping, or skidding down any trail when you have 20 - 25 pounds of gear and food on your bikepacking rig.
OTOH while hiking I have been pushed to the side by trail runners careening downhill half out of control.
