The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 53 - Should Climbers Still Have the Right of Way?
FIRST QUESTION: in which scenario are riders more likely to get injured: 1) A rider going downhill on a narrow singletrack clips or runs into a stopped rider? OR 2) A rider going uphill on a narrow singletrack clips or runs into a stopped rider? SECOND QUESTION: If downhill riders get the right of way to pass, what speed is too fast to pass safely and how can we be sure each rider (some who maybe new) is able to appropriately judge that speed? Passing at speed on narrow singletrack is inherently dangerous whether the trail is steep or flat. It is ALWAYS safer for uphill riders to pass because their momentum is naturally limited to safer passing speeds. I live in an area with a lot of out of town riders and more and more newbs. I don’t want to now need to prepare to hurl myself out of the way on narrow singletrack every time a rider is descending just because there is a chance the next rider down could be some gaper that thinks it’s safe to pass going +15mph without his feet on the pedals riding over-inflated plus tires that are bouncing off baby heads on a 1 foot wide trail
