Jogging rules on shared bike and pedestrian paths

On a shared bike and pedestrian path which side should a jogger run? When riding my bike I always stay to the right and think joggers should too.

Around here runners should keep right and bikes pass on the left. Other locales may have different conventions.

You run facing automobile traffic because of the high speed differential and because you can easily dodge off the road when you need to. The speed difference between joggers and most cyclists on most shared paths isn't so great.

Most places I've lived this is the rule on MUPs.



Now, since this is the Intro forum, tell us about yourself and your bike(s).

I agree with the premise of your post. Gonna have to disagree with the location though.

What is this England? Unfortunately around here people think the MUP stands for "Meandering Unaware Pedestrian" and is for weaving back and forth like a stoned drunk.
