This is a local trail.  A pretty ride until the guy filming it decides to go faster than he should on a very popular trail.

Beautiful Marcus, thought the guys having a chat might have cleared the trail though.

Next time I'm out in the peak district, Derbyshire, I'll try and get some shots for MTB comunity post, only stills though.

I look forward to seeing your pics.  I have plans to ride that trail in the vid, as soon as I get a helmet.  :(

Once you get a helmet you will wonder what the hell every one without one is thinking of.

I think us helmet guys :handbag: are like reformed smokers, you'll marvel at the idiocy of riders without. :gtg:

Just remember guys, someone enjoying a nice walk in the country might be on the path around the next bush. and wouldn't be too happy as some nutter on a mountain bike coming down too fast to stop on what is technically a footpath not a road.  :say_no_more:

Don't know about the states, but in UK MTBs should not be on footpaths, have to ride bridle tracks or MTB trails, so this lessens the chance of an unexpected confrontation.

But agreed, ride with consideration :hats off:

don't believe that...wtf have they stopped halfway down a trail, even if you have a prob like a puncture or something you still get off the bloody trail....idiots  lol

mostly here in the UK if your sharing a path with walkers, it is signposted that that is the case....however my personal opinion is run the suckers over :rotfl:

This video was the subject of a heated debate on a local forum I visit.  I guess the owner took it down out of embarrassment.  lol
