To the editor:
This is a plea to the bicycle riders that utilize the South Lawrence Trafficway walkway. I frequently run a section of the bypass trail with my dog. I keep him on a leash so that I can control his actions and interactions with others using the same trail.
All too often, a bicycle rider will come from behind and pass by us at a fairly high rate of speed (for a bicycle) and not provide any warning of the passing danger. Sometimes a rider is courteous enough to say, "On your left," but not always.
I am diligent about staying on my side of the trail but my canine friend is back and forth quite a bit. I am only asking for a little advance warning and I will give you the space you require for all of our safety. Thanks.
