Ok.. so i almost got killed thrice today because of stupid walkers/skaters w/ headphones or ipods. I usually click my brake lever when passing, but this obviously doesnt work. I tried yelling on your left but this is only efefctive if their music isnt up too loud and always risks the chance that they will move left. any usggestions short of a air horn???
Interestingly, I stopped twice for water today and was accosted by walkers i passed on two occassions. One yelled at me for yelling and scaring them...the other for not yelling "on your left" I tried to explain to the second one that yellign that usually results in people moving to their left and doesnt work with people with headphones. She responded that bikes shouldnt be on the trail because they are too dangerous and that people liek to walk and listen to music. I told her that i like to drink beer and rid ebut that doesnt make it safe. Long story short (too late i know) i flipped her off and then took off.
