That is a crock. I doubt you've ever even been there.

This from coloradotrail.org, see under 'Regulations':
"Cyclists should similarly obey the courtesy of allowing hikers (as well as
horse-back riders) the right-of-way, just as vehicles do on city streets."
And this from the IMBA website:
"YIELD APPROPRIATELY:...Bicyclists should yield to other non-motorized trail
users, unless the trail is clearly signed for bike-only travel."
Why does noone, and I mean NO ONE, follow this protocol? Not once on the
CT. Save for the last day, as I approached the southern CT terminus, a guy
dismounted as I approached. Astonished, I told him he was the first to do
that in a month. His response: 'I'm from California.' lol.
