A narrow trail or single-track is one that is just wide enough for one biker a time. Since trail is narrow, you might not have any option about where to go! You would also need to prevent hitting of your pedals with sides of trail.
Here are tips to ride on a narrow/single-track trail
* Make yourself familiar with any local rules and regulations about use of trail.
* Always ride at a slow and controlled speed. When making a turn, slow down adequately so you can stop quickly if needed.
* Scan your path for wild critters, snakes, squirrels, birds etc. It is a fact that animals generally make use of a single-track path as they find it more fitting, so be cautious.
* While making your way through trail, concentrate more on its openings rather than obstacles.
* Converse with other riders on trail; warn riders that you to wish to pass.
* Be yielding. Offer trail to other riders. In case a rider who is going downhill comes your way while you are climbing, step aside and allow him/her to pass.
* In case you are unable to ride a particular part of trail, get down bike and walk.
