It's funny around here (Minneapolis area), on a 25-mile ride you can go from the city, where nearly everybody gets the trail rules and we all work together well. But ride out to the exurbs, and you'll find fewer people understand the rules and you need to use more caution. On the bright side, the exurbs have significantly fewer trail users.
