    F the Chicago Cubs...

    Call it what you want, but this is NOT a weather rant...

    Seriously, F spring training. F the train of hikers in their Rockports and their fanny packs. F the love birds walking hand-in-hand two abreast talking about the latest Justin Beaver album. F the guy on the cell phone calling about the TV he found on Craigslist. F the jogger who decides to let me pass by standing on the best part of the trail. F the cyclist who yells at me for getting in his way during his descent. Oh, and F Sammy Sosa. STAY OFF MY TRAIL!!!!!

    There, I said it. I got it off my chest. That is the last rant until hopefully October, when I ***** and moan about having to turn the heater on.

    (And to head you all off at the pass: I say "hi" to every hiker, biker, jogger, etc., I see on the trail. I just *wish* they all did it some place else.)

    Sorry bro. I thought this was a forum for mt bikers, not photographers. I'm been trying to upload my Polaroids, but I can't get them to fit in my disc drive. Any suggestions?

    You were rather fired up about the hikers. Should have ridden with us.
    This is just need to know information: Am i supposed to enjoy the irony or pity the sincerity?

    I was just finishing up my ride. But that was a big group. Was it an organized thing? Did you ever find the lost biker? I felt sorry for her, and she looked like she was struggling a bit (but she had a bit smile on her face).

    To be blunt, I was in a sour mood after some assjack bombing down T100 yelled at me for being on the left side of the trail (which is the smooth part) on the climb. It was just frustrating to not get into a groove, as it seemed every couple minutes or so, I had to slow for another hiker. But up to that point, I just chalked it up to the nice weather and knew the trails would be crowded. And I'd rather they be out taking advantage of the trails versus inside playing video games, etc. It was just that damn cyclist yelling at me .

    If it's wide enough for two cyclists then, yep, git to the right. I believe in "up" has the right of way, but being choosy about sides is being petty.

    Yep, perfect out this morning!!!

    Sorry, you're wrong. Uphill rider should get the right of way, and I chose to stay on the hardpacked part of the trail versus over the baby heads. I'm fairly certain he saw exactly the path I was taking (the hardpacked part is very easy to see), and assumed I'd move over to let him descend. (In addition, I was on the SS, so dropping a gear and spinning was not an option, but I'm not sure he noticed the bike I was riding.)

    Trust me, I know cycling protocol and etiquette. And I took a stand this time. More often than not cyclists bombing T100 are less that cordial to ascending cyclists. I have no problem "sharing" the trail, but the trail gets very loose in a lot of places, and makes it more difficult for the uphill rider.

    "Fairly certain" and "assumed" doesn't help make your point. Also, it doesn't matter if you choose to ride a single speed or geared. If he had been on a fixie going downhill would he have had the right of way because he had to be more discriminative with rock avoidance? YOUR choice of bike has no bearing on the subject. Yes, I ride ss as well. Damn, I'm pissy for having ridden 2.5 hours this perfect morning.

    I say F sensitive cyclists on the trail that believe their choice of bike or riding style should dictate right of way and F everyone else.

    I'm off to throw blue bags filled with dog sh!t at hikers with pets off leash.

    My point was, he was in the wrong, whether he knew it or not, despite what bike I was on. (I find it humorous that I made an aside that I was on my SS, and that it had no bearing on my comments since I'm pretty certain he didn't know I was on a SS. Yet you're basing all this on the bike I was riding.)

    If we ran into each other, and he apologized for not giving me the right of way, I would not be having this conversation. But not only did he practically run me over, but he then suggested it was my fault he almost ran me over by yelling for me to get out of his way.

    Where does it state that riders should stay on the right side of a trail? Where does it say that if you are on the left side of a trail, and a cyclist is coming the opposite direction, that you must get to the right side of the trail?

    Giving the exact situation, you would have had the same reaction I had. And you know it.

    100% in favor. In fact, I think leashes should be banned altogether. And let dogs poop on the trail. I mean, come on, their dogs. That's what they do: poop.
