I am somewhat new to the MTB deal and new to the park. I went out this afternoon after parking at Dairy Ashford and headed west on the south side, I made it to eldridge and took the pavement on the north side back. I stayed on the bike, bike stayed in one piece, I didn’t kill anyone else and I had fun. I did my homework on the park and etiquette on the trail but I still have a question or two:
I am clear on passing walkers, runners ( on your left) and such but what about while on the trail? I know about yielding to riders going uphill but that’s about it. I think some riders were “announcing” their ascent up hills and around blind corners. I just wanted to be clear. My biggest fear is a collision with someone.
I want to make sure this MTB thing is for me and I am a cheap SOB, so I have a wallyworld China-made schwinn but so far it is still in one piece. I have kept an eye on craigslist and such and will look into rental if it turns out I dig this MTB thing.
Thanks in advance, and take it easy on the dude laying in the grass, out of breath, with a Wal-Mart special someone in his vicinity in pieces.
