Trail Hogs

This photo I snapped recently shows one of my pet peeves when riding my bike on La Crosse's marsh trail: people who hog the trail while walking on it, giving little room for bicyclists to pass by. When I approach such walkers from behind I have to ring my bike's bell or sing out, "Passing on your left." The reaction I often get is a hard glare and frown from the walkers as if I have intruded on their own private walkway. Go figure.

You don't want to discourage people from walking. Particularly the two people in this picture -- they need the exercise.

(I need the exercise, too!)

Don't get me wrong . . . I'm glad the people are walking but I just wish they would keep to the right when doing do.
