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.

Thank you.

  1. Hell, they do the same when they ride past you on a sidewalk, where they aren’t even supposed to be, both on bikes and those 3-wheel Ebikes that people seem to think are mobility scooters( they aren’t..)
