Letter: Take care on the Xget'tem Trail

It would be awesome if all cyclists on the trail either used a bell or let people know they are coming up behind them

Editor:

This wonderful multi-use Xget’tem Trail in Peterson Creek Park is used on a regular basis by scores of Kamloops residents and visitors to our community.

Most everyone respects others, but there are a few exceptions.

Some cyclists fly down the trail and do not give other trail users any warning that they are approaching, nor do they slow down.

This is particularly an issue when the biker is coming from behind another trail user. I am blind and it is very scary when one of these cyclists flies past my guide dog and myself without any warning.

Most cyclists do use bells or say “Coming up behind you” and this is so greatly appreciated.

It would be awesome if all cyclists on the trail either used a bell or let people know they are coming up behind them.

This would make the trail a safer place to be and would have a positive impact on the end user’s experience.
