"Look, "bike track": that's just semantics. Some are called bikeways, whatever. (One doesn't call a road a "shared commuting space for rubber-wheeled vehicles".) As you have read, I advocate sharing behaviour."
"I think it could be a possibility to run a bike trail right along the river for this part as currently it deviates from the river and goes straight through the farm with paddocks to either side. If a bike trail was built right along the river, it…"
"Good point. I suppose you can't please all of the people all of the time. Maybe I'll just get a t-shirt with a message on the back saying "Cyclists: please refrain from *pinging* me while passing." And a little icon on a bell…"

"I'm sooo not a fan of 'warn of approach'. On a 3 hour walk on the trail, I get pinged at every 5 seconds and it's very bothersome. I blame signs for that as cyclists are advised to do this... it is another common sense issue,…"
"In this instance I believe that the signs help. I have notices that one council on my commute has clear Path use advise at the entrances to its paths, they highlight all the common sence things like keep left, warn of approach etc.. The also have…"
"Haha. How do you make them? Perhaps like one concerned father I saw a few weekends ago who was telling passing cyclists "SLOW DOWN!!" I'm not quite to the stage of taking policing into my own hands... but I'm also not a parent,…"
