    Strava douches take note: It pays to be courteous.

    Great vid….



    Video: It Pays to be Courteous - Pinkbike

    Admittedly I am a bit of a Strava douche myself. I don’t run people over but I might not stop and chat. I have pissed off horse people before when I was getting into riding and did not know better. Now I play the who can be more polite game with them. I do my fair share of trail clearing and building so its all good.

    I just do not see the "Passion" in marginalizing a segment of this great sport. Besides, its too easy and has been beat to death. I'll go sit in the corner now.

    Why do you hurt me so?

    I am just a noob trying to make my way in this oh so cruel mtbr universe. Actually not so much, long time poster over at rbr so I am used to the general section being up on top. Figured passion is similar, mods feel free to move as need be. Not trying to deride or marginalize the sports at all. Just thought it was a cool vid that could do some good for some to see, myself included!

    For that grouchy time of the month may I suggest a Hot Carl or Cleveland Steamer?

    Haha, you said testy!

    Good message in that video! And what's up with people not yielding to someone climbing up the trail all because they yell "rider up" first?
    I'm going to rob banks til I retire or get caught. Either way I'm set for life

    I got a kick out of the '70's man pelt. I'm glad that decade from hell is gone- bad hair, bad clothes, severely rapid decline of the "performance" car, really bad tv shows (although they're no better now either). Those of you who keep trying to revive it weren't born yet or are too naive to know how bad it sucked.

    Video was funny but honestly that's how lots of people ride out here on the East Coast when there's a race or an epic ride. At the Cranky Monkey in Rocky Gap last year, the pre-race talk subject was passing etiquette and " whatever you do, when you see a rider down ahead of you, it's not cool to ride over the rider and bike". I've seen numerous crashes as a result of people passing in tight corners and other tech sections just because they didn't want to wait a few more seconds.
    Those horses need to go back to the ranch or off to the glue factory.

    Lol ya think? I'm sure it's not just an east coast thing, although if you judge by the way we drive it's probably not too far from the truth. But to counter my own statement, in the past when I've traveled to Indiana to visit family it seems that every other midwesterner turns into a ripsnortin' nascar redneck behind the wheel

    Tokul east trail system which is a few miles east of Seattle. Great user built trail system but I must say I've never seen a gaggle of babes like that at the TH before!

    All I saw was neon green boobies and a Shetland pony.

    That was awesome! Pretty much sums up my day every time I'm on bike patrol. Seems like I'm apologizing for the d-bag who flew by before me.

    Nicely done. Just enough cheese to make it effective, but not sanctimonious.

    which makes it so incredibly ripe for satire......think Anchorman: the Legend of Ron Burgundy
    I thought the video was very well done and perfectly captured the issue without being overbearing.
    Kids will think it's funny while also getting the point, and hopefully adults will too.

    And the Lord said let there be boobies. And there were boobies. And it was good. Very, very good.
