I was told that the direction is supposed to change from time to time. Just wondering when that will happen or if anyone knows

It changes for the second lap of a night ride.  Cool

I used to ride; now I just drink and cry about not riding.

Changing directions at Beatty would only confuse the runners... and they are already confused.

I love coming up behind a runner going the wrong way wearing headphones and then calling out loud to them and watching them jump and dance all over the trail not knowing which way to go. They act as confused as the squirrels.

I had one near the berms section on the softball loop at Renni last week... Lost speed that would've cooled me down. 

What's the rule about clipping them with the grips/handlebars when you go by? Is that sort of thing frowned upon or...? 

I mean, they're just runners...

lol runners at Beatty are a little special... I came up behind one girl running the wrong way one day.  She had her headphones in and her music turned up so she couldn't hear me at all.  Whenever I got a chance to pass, I totally scared the sh*t out of her  Grin

I was told by someone else that the direction changed. I actually rode the trail backwards the other day and like the way it flows much better that way. I can honestly say that was the only time I have rode and not seen a single person. It was great! As for runners I had a group of 3 people previously running the correct way and 2 out of 3 stepped off the trail so I increased speed in order to hit a lil jump and the 3rd one stepped in my way as the front tire hit the jump. Ended up crashing bc of it... I was LIVID but just hopped up brushed off and got away from them before I lost it


and before anybody freaks out... I do not ride when it is wet.
