How Not To Behave On A Ride | Mountain Bike Trail Etiquette


Welcome
back you beautiful people and today’s all about the
worst trail etiquette ever. You guys have given us a few more examples on the comments down below and we’ve pulled out
some of the best ones. Or the worst. So here it goes. (light jingle) – Hey, we’ve got a rider, ay! What, he’s shreddin hard. – Woo! Hey can you help, please? – Can I help? – Oh man, thank you so much for stopping, you were shreddin so hard. I was wonderin if you’ve got a
tube and pump and some tools? Like I’ve got a puncture and I really wanna go back shreddin. Can you help? (groaning) Uh, yeah hang on. Just hang on. Yeah I think I’ve got that, hang on. Maybe, I’m not too sure. No, sorry, I haven’t got anything. Sorry mate. Yeah there’s loads more riders up there, they can, they can help you out. Yeah no worries mate,
hopefully you get help alright. KOMs, not gonna do that again. – He’s gone, wow. Nice guy, nice guy. – [Narrator] Whoa, whoa,
whoa, whoa, wait one second. Let’s just try that again. – Hey! Got a rider, ay! What he’s shreddin hard. Woo! Hey can you help please? – Yo, you look like a
damsel in distress dude. – Oh thanks so much for stoppin man. Sorry to disturb your shred. You were shreddin hard. You don’t happen to have a pump and a tube in that backpack of yours? – Yeah sure, look at that. Dude, I’ve been there. I’ve learnt, I’ve learnt. That’s why I carry a backpack. Here you go. – Man you’re such a star,
thank you so much man. You’re a man, you’re the man. Yes. – [Narrator] The trails
are not just for you, they’re made for everyone to enjoy. Try to be friendly
because that’s one reason that mountain biking is the
best sport in the world. Don’t be that guy, cause you might be that
damsel in distress. (light jingle) – Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Oh, I recon I got this. What’s that? Oh! Oh man, that was close. Oh let’s look at this again. Oh! Is it safe? That was close. I recon I got this, yup, yup yup yup yup. Stoppin on the jumps is not clever. It’s not safe. So it’s always good to get off your bike, lean your bike and if you really wanna look at the gap to look around the jump, make sure you can see if anyone’s coming. Be safe, keep an ear and an
eye open for other riders because it’s a trail, everyone’s out to have some fun. I’m gonna look at this trail, like that, make sure there’s no one coming, yes, I can do it. Don’t stop on here with your bike. Super annoyin and it’s dangerous. Specially if the jump’s big
and you’re gonna try and jump off it, you have to go back
down towards the oncoming rider. It’s not clever. (light jingle) – We’ve all been there, we’ve been on a super muddy ride, we get off our bike, we wanna go in the nearest pub, bar, cafe, wherever to warm up,
grab ourselves some food, we go in muddy. Good practice is, if you take
a second pair of clothing so you can get changed into
some nice clean clothing so you can go sit in a nice warm pub. Not in all your dirtiness. Nasty, cause you’ll get some evil looks. Or if you’re this guy, you’ll
probably get chucked out. (light jingle) – [Second Rider] Oy mate, get out the way! Get out the way! Oh man, you’re crampin my style bra. Move already, get off the trail! Serves you right! – [Narrator] If you’re comin up to a slow rider on the trail, be nice. Riding on their back wheel isn’t gonna make them ride faster. If anything, it’s super dangerous
and might make them crash. Let them know you’re there
and give them enough space for them to ride along to find a spot so you can pass safely. – [Second Rider] Hey, just to let you know I’m on your tail dude. Thank you very much. Yes. What a nice guy. (light jingle) – Ah, this trail’s the dream. Oh man I wanna do that again. So much fun. Oh I’m gonna go back
this way, it’s quicker. I’m not goin up that push up, yeah. – [Narrator] There’s good
reasons why downhill trails don’t allow riders to ride
back up the same trail. When you’re riding down, you’re not thinkin about
riders coming back up. No one wants that, so just stick to the
designated climbing trail to get to the top. (light jingle) Not all trails are built
specifically for mountain bikers, and sometimes we need to
share our favorite riding spot with other trail users. – Oh there’s a hiker, get away! Idiot! – [Narrator] And that
means respecting others that use the trail. Do not zoom past that poor
little hiker or even horse riders or other trail users. Give them space. Give them the respect that you would want on the trail yourself. – Oh, aya, just on your right. Thanks. What a cool guy. (light jingle) – Oh, that was too much fun. Oh man. (sighing) – [Narrator] Take a look at this, this guy comes in, lays
his bike on the floor, opens his bag, leaves
his helmet on the floor. He scatters his stuff everywhere. – Oh man. – Oh sorry, sorry guys. – Oh man, your stuff’s in the way. – Sorry, I’m just trying to get. (groaning) I just wanted to get my pump. So you’ve done a run of the trail. Now you’re getting back to the trail head. You feel a bit parched
so you wanna crack open your favorite beverage. So what do you do? You place your bike nicely. Somewhere off the floor
and out of people’s way. Thank you everybody for
