Would Saultonline remind their readership using the hub trail that if they are cycling on the hub trail to ring a bell or call out before passing a pedestrian from behind?
I was dog walking on the hub trail near the old hospital site today when I was startled by a cyclist that silently passed me travelling in the same direction.
I could have easily stepped directly into his path, and/or the dog I was walking as well could have crossed in front of the cyclist as I did not hear this cyclist approaching from behind me.
This simple overlooked courtesy could potentially prevent a collision between pedestrian and silent cyclists and make the hub trail safer for all.
I would greatly appreciate to remind cyclists of the importance of ringing a bell or calling out an alert when approaching pedestrians (or other cyclists too) from behind them.
