Cautions Posted For Cyclists

horse and bike

Years ago, laws in some cities required bicyclists to dismantle their bikes if they encountered a horse in their travels.  Suffice it to say, it has long been known that bicycles and horses are not a good mix.  Earlier this month, Friends of Pathways issued a statement reminding mountain bikers that horses have had the right-of-way on trails because the horse can be very unpredictable in a trail encounter.  In fact, their statement goes on, “On rare occasions, a particular horse may not pass a rider [on a] bike unless the bike is laid on its side.” In their blog, Friends of Pathways suggests, “Make sure the horse has seen you from a distance and knows you are a human.  Look for guidance from the horse rider before passing. Bring accompanying dogs under control.  Use extra caution on blind curves on shared trails.”  Finally, the organization urges bike riders to “use common sense and share-the-trail courtesy” when traveling in horse country.

    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
