Trail Etiquette, some riders have it and some don't. It can be hard to decipher the grey area that it is as there are no written rules of the trail so to speak. I usually forgive the errors of mountain bike noobs, everyone had to start somewhere and some have more to learn than others. Hopefully someone finds this article a little enlightening and learns a bit from it, although I am no expert. These tips come from my 16 years as a mountain biker and are by no means "in stone", also keep in mind there will be some sarcasm.

Who has the right of way on the trail?

4) Being Prepared

5) Don't be an Asshole

6) Become an ambassador of the sport
