    Bicycle Speed Zones - Austin park rules

    I heard it, saw it in a movie or read somewhere that there is a 10mph speed limit on trails. I finally took a look around and found this. Haven't seen any bike speed zones yet but I did remember to drive 15 on the hardtop.

    1.19 TRAIL USE
    E. Unless otherwise posted, all portions of the Hike and Bike trails are designated as Bicycle Speed Zones and shall be identified by signage. Bicyclists shall not travel faster than 10 Miles Per Hour in areas designated as Bicycle Speed Zones.

    >A. May not block sidewalks or in any way impede pedestrian or >vehicular traffic circulation.

    So this explains why I've seen people leaving the trails into the underbrush.

    Yeah...that must be a really old code relating to the town lake, shoal creek, etc hike-n-bike trails. If you read the whole thing it also says you "should not be more than two abreast when this action will impede other traffic on the trail" i.e. definitely not written for singletrack.

    Is it just me or does this happen to everyone. EVERY time somebody gives me grief at the greenbelt or WC about "you bikers need to slow down out here" It's usually after I had to come to a complete stop because of said complainer's out of control, unleashed dog or kid.

    i feel ya chongo loco.....u know, it' as if these people think the single track is an extension of the hike & bike. then when i come up on 3 or more abreast & say "on your left" they turn around & look at me like i'm some sorta freekin' idiot. like i interupted their conversation & all. but hey....enough about the personal gripes........when i c these same folks n august, they always smile & ask "where's the nearest water" like i'm some kinda link between life & death. go figure!!!
