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.
