- Trail manners at GT – Trailquest content
Ultimately 3 riding abreast and not moving for someone wanting to pass is not very good trail manners. Likewise cursing and swearing at people who may have taken a few seconds longer to move than you'd like when riding on open public trails is not very good trail manners either.

I agree, but hesitating for a second isn't the same as not moving, is it? If it is, I guess my countryside rule book must be out of date 🙄Posted 7 years ago
They assumed it was a joke and hesitated for a second.coffeekingMember
"for a second" is often mis-used especially by those in "defence mode". And "a second" for one person in a race may be significantly differnt to a second for peope on a gentle jaunt up fireroats not expecting to be part of a race. Maybe it's the fact that his friends thought it was him and laughed it off before realising that triggered the outburst. As I say, 6 of 1.Posted 7 years agopastcaringMember

although i nearly run over a squirrel! i stopped and apologized and he was cool and we both went on our way.
3 riding abreast doesn,t block a road,and I don,t care what anyone says there is no need to swear at people especially when the so called racers are doing 2mph faster than the trail riders,as for insurance,yes I do have it,was I the one sworen at yes,did I defend my position,yes,do I race,yes,have I ever sworn at or tried to barge past other riders in a race,no,the correct terminoligy for someone needing to pass would be rider and shout what side he wanted to pass on not to wheeze peep peep at someone,then get totally antisocial.Posted 7 years agomissingfrontallobeMember
If I was chatting to mates like that on a fire road, and someone "peep-peepd" from behind, I probably wouldn't go "oh shit, its a racer", but neither would I expect him to go to full on effing & jeffing in no time at all.
If someone rode up behind me and said "excuse me" then I'd probably react faster than with a "peep-peep".
Sounds like TQ competitors are way too competitive for me!Posted 7 years ago
