    I'm tired of being ignorant

    OK. I give. What's an MUP? All I can think of is a Mudded Up Place.

    No, wait, this is the 50 Plus forum. We're not supposed to tease other cyclists, we're too mature for that. Just tell him what a MUP is and then it will be "Why didn't I think of that?"

    You guys would do this to a new poster................

    It's a multi use path. They can be very useful and a lot of fun but they can also be your worst nightmare as they are littered with.......surprise......other users. Those users can be pedestrians, dogs, children (a much worse version of the pedestrian), horses and most dangerously, other people riding bicycles. MUP's require a modicum of civility and responsibility toward others. Usually there are stay to the right rules, a speed limit (which should be common sense among crowds but doesn't seem to be) and a responsibility for you to inform slower folk that you are going to pass them.

    The largest conflicts exist because none of the users understands the requirements or desires of the other users and in most cases don't care. (wait.............that's life isn't it).

    Which is why I usually wait until someone else asks.

    Ask anyway. I think that you will find the fun poking to be more fun than not.

    But.........I knew that you knew that so because I was afraid that others might not know that I knew that you knew that I posted the so that they would know that too.

    Well, being in the advanced stages of "CRS" which is known as "CRAFT", I have no idea what the question was.

    "The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?"

    And, its true. MaddMaxx was right, the fun-poking was much more enjoyable. waldowales hint gave it away. Thanks, folks

    And actually, where I've been riding is one of the horsey/bikey kind of MUPs, and as it is a single-track in the woods, visibility is quite low. I think I need to hang a bear bell from my bike to alert others I'm coming.

    So, anyway, the next obvious question is, how do distinguish the difference between a paved MUP and a cinder/limestone or dirt MUP?

    I get torn between not wanting to hit them and not wanting to give them a heart attack when I ring my bell. And when I yell out "On your left," it seems to confuse them so much that they turn around and stand in the left lane.

    Aha. That is one of the unanswered questions. Everyone talks MUP without distinction. I will supply the provisional abbreviation MSMUP. (multi-surface multi-use-path).

    I suspect you will get further with "paved MUP" or "unpaved MUP".....

    By the time you get to trails in the woods, your getting reasonably far away from most folks definition of MUP's.

    Users of MUP's are called MUPPIES.

    I didn't know what it MUP meant either. We have a paved MUP about 1 1/2 miles long, but the walkers will be walking toward you and will stay two abreast, and force you into the grass. It is a pain in the neck, so I stay on the road with the cars.

    Oooohh, I know! Mount an little tinkly bell -- along with an air horn from a semi truck on your bike. If they don't yield to the tinkly bell... Of course the needed batteries to run that would probably add more weight than the surprised compliance would be worth. Oh well.

    I kind of like "muddied up place".

    Bike Forums 50+ is a MUP.
