It has been a crazy year but one of the upsides is people are getting outdoors more as indoor events are pretty much cancelled. There are more people than ever on the trails hiking and biking and while this is great for everyone’s health, both mental and physical, it does mean that we need to be more aware of the rules, some written and other assumed. By being a responsible rider while sharing the trails with others it will assist in keeping everyone safe and happy!
We know that especially to new mountain bikers that there is a lot to learn about riding and keeping it all straight while barreling down a singletrack can be tough (is that the seat post dropper or my gear shift) and we can become so focused on just riding the bike that we forget all the stuff going on around us, like other trail users, and this can create conflict. Keeping these rules in mind will assure everyone has a great day out.
Follow these tips and you will be a great ambassador of the bike, and if you seem someone breaking these rules, feel free to politely educate them so we can all enjoy our natural resources and we can keep bikes access on our favorite rides!
