down hill safety tip

Postby Chamoistime » Thu Sep 04, 2014 5:41 pm

Just a friendly reminder to stay on the right even if it seems like no riders are behind you.

This is for your safety too because faster riders inevitably sneak up quickly. When they do, they are anxious to get back up to the mach 2 downhill experience they just earned. However, mach 2 fun triggers poor passing judgment from many. Not that the poor judgement can be excused, but the risk of mishaps at mach 2 can be minimized by letting faster riders go by safely.

Have fun, be safe, enjoy the awesome downhill you will earn, and stay to the right as soon as you can get over safely.
