Well as much as I slightly agree with your stance that sign is "Parks BC only". If you are lucky enough to live in a region that has a lot of trails, built by mountain bikers for mountain bikers, like I am, then I am afraid that the "primary use" has some sway. That said, unless it is DH only, then descenders give way to climbers and those people that have the space to safely pull off the trail should yield if the other person doesn't have space. If I come across some dick trail runner coming up a DH only or primary bike trail then I am going to try my best to a. stop, b. not over react and c. educate politely, but I am not going to bin it myself to not scare this douche canoe. And e-bikes should always give way to proper bikes, unless it is an e-bike primary trail (do they even exist). Finally people should stop throwing around the expression "free trails", no such thing. Chat to me about how welcome you were at drop in hockey when you told the manager you weren't going to pay for ice time!! Trails cost a lot. So put your grubby little hand in your pocket and pay for trail memberships, if you are a skidder double it. And if you don't know what the "wet weather' filter is then maybe quintuple it or buy a throttle powered e-bike and ride on the road. Oh and don't have pot parties on trail junctions as not everyone wants to suck your passive smoke.
