BIKER GOING WRONG WAY ON BLUE RUN HITS ME! Outer loop (6.4 mile blue run). An out-of-control biker crashed into me and my friend this weekend. It was Horrible!, I asked "why are you riding towards the back of the mile markers" (he was facing the back of the signs...flying down the hill clockwise)???" He crashed into us coming from behind (not facing) the blue 3 mile sign marker. Its on the small hill of blue outer run area. He said he goes both ways...and "who the *uck cares" which way is which. I said "if you can read the front of the posted mile marker signs (riding your bike counter clockwise w/ your right shoulder always facing to the outside of the clock/loop)...Then you are going the right way, safe way to ride the bike trial. I told him if the mile markers signs are NOT facing you, or you can't read them, then you are going the WRONG WAY! he said "who *ucking cares which way is what"! I've been riding this trail for over 2yrs. I RIDE COUNTER CLOCKWISE. I SEE THE MILE MARKERS PAINTED ON SIGNS FACING FORWARD For years, I have asked several riders and friends with all agreement...face the signs. The signs (mile markers) are posted that way for the BLUE RUN for a reason! NOTE! Walkers, runners and hikers... please go clockwise/your right side shoulders facing into the middle of loop. Run so you are looking at the back of the signs (mile markers). It is just like walking against traffic on the street. It's safe! It's the right thing! This way you will see bikes coming. If you need signs to help direct you...just turn you head at each point you pass, and count the miles that way. Why risk you, kids and your dogs? It could be so easy....so safe for everyone. Plus Bikers get HORNSBELLS!! Warn people ahead of time. God I hope someone never gets seriously hurt... If they do bikers,they will shut down bikes...there's no other place to ride near SA. Please Help!
