    what a schmuck!
    ~"It's very simple: Those going downhill should have the right of way — because they are usually going faster than those going uphill, and therefore it is much easier to get off a trail if you are going up as opposed to going down"~
    so this guy must be one of the morons screaming down that i push off the trail when i'm climbing up.........

    he brings up dogs too. must be a dog hater on top of being a dumbass.

    everybody knows that the downhill rider should ride off trail to avoid the uphill rider...that way, the downhill rider doesn't have the stop..and the unhill rider doesn't have to stop.

    sheesh

    Here's a little quote of a song about a sergeant major, perhaps they all make bold statements

    Jet! Was your father as bold as a sergeant major?
    Well how come he told you that you were hardly old enough yet?
    And Jet,
    I thought the major was a lady suffragette
    Jet! Oo Jet! Oo

    Must be a nooooob and doesn't realize what a pain it is to get started again on the uphill climb. By adding that he is retired Army he is saying that his **** don't stink and his word is law in eye-de-ho.... Sorry, but on this one he is wrong. To friggin stupid to look up the rules that are posted on the maps.
    Ride the bike.

    I think you've got that wrong. (ret.) stands for RETARDED, not retired...

    Sounds like you've been riding Bucktail & Shanes... I appreciate the half- a$$ed attempt at yielding, but I can't let it go... I'm always yelling, "PLEASE stay on the trail!!"
