Save a trail, ride a bike!

quote:I think this often happens because the uphill rider is looking for a reason to stop and rest. It is fatigue disguised as politeness. Other times the climber just assumes he is about to get run over if he does not get out of the way so he stops. Once he has stopped and the downhill rider has stopped, it is just easier to have the downhill rider start off first (back to gravity again).

I wish more people on the trail knew that the uphill rider has the right of way. I stopped numerous times to let the uphill rider go by only to have them stop and say I could go. Then we get into the politeness agrument, "you go ahead, no you go, really it's ok..." etc. Just keep climbing, and shout at any downhill rider that doesn't stop for you! I get tired of stopping downhill only to have the other person let me go. Oh well, could be worse!

(Yes, this is my rest time disguized as being nice) A simple hi or thanks would be appreciated though! Lastly, after searching my 200+ hrs. of video, the only thing I've wrestled to the ground is me!

Steer wrestling them is only authorized if you have a helmet cam or other video recording device active, thus properly documenting for training of our younger riders.
