Trail Etiquette

So, I was riding on St. Joeseph's hill this weekend, and as I was about to overtake a couple of walkers, I called out the standard "On your left!"  Well, the walkers didn't move and continued to take up the majority of the trail.  I was afraid I'd clip one of them as I passed, so I called out again and slowed down.  Yet, as I got closer, neither of the walkers had moved, so this time I yelled out "On your left!"  One of the walkers turned to me and shouted, "We heard you the first time!"

Hmmpf.  In case it's not obvious, faster users of a trail  not only announce their presence as a courtesy, but also for everybody's safety.

Still, had a great ride.  It was much more difficult than it should've been, which means I need to get out more.
