Dear Abby on trail use

I somehow missed this Dear Abby column that appeared in the Belleville News-Democrat and other newspapers throughout the United States on Jan. 31. (I have to admit that I tend to skim Lifestyle sections in any newspaper I read and focus more closely on News and Sports sections).

But the ever-vigilant Cycling Dude (Kiril Kundurazieff) wrote about it on his blog the other day. I, like Kiril, agree with many of the points that readers made in the column.

The complaints are similar to ones I've heard over the years: Cyclists whiz by walkers without warning, and walkers two or more abreast don't move over when cyclists do warn them. I can tell you from first-hand experience that both are true.

"The obvious solution is for walkers and riders to be considerate of one another, recognizing that we share a common road through life," Celia in Missoula, Mont., suggested.

Amen to that!
