Unwritten Rules of single track riding


The RVO has some superb sections of single track. The ride of way principal applies to single track and any challenging sections. Ride of Way is a very simple concept that applies to all mountain bikers all over the planet:

“If you are walking on a section because it is too technical or you are too tired to cycle, you must give way to those that are riding”

If you are behind someone pushing simply ask for ride of way.

Give Way – if there is a faster rider behind you, try to find a safe place to let him or her pass you. If you are man and she is a woman do not knock her over just because she is faster than you.

If you are behind a slower rider, politely ask them to let you pass but don’t make them panic and fall. We are all here for a good time. Keep it nice and chilled and nobody will get hurt. Not even your ego.
