Headphone etiquette on the trail:
With the world situation changing daily, more people have been finding their way
out to trails. Some it maybe their 1 st time riding or walking trails. There are still
some rules and etiquette that need to be followed.
Most of us enjoy listening to music, podcasts or audiobooks to add to our
experience. But we still need to be aware of our environment and the people we
share it with. One rule to remember is to keep the volume low so you hear bikers or
others on the trail. People move at different rates so it is important to move a side
(stay right) as needed so others can safely pass. This will reduce injuries to all
enjoying the outdoors.
