Re: Do peddlers hate me?
I'm with Happyvalley with the exception that I will use my engine on bike trails when there are no pedal people, dogs, kids or pedestrians close enough to hear me. When I encounter them I hit the kill switch, lock the clutch and pedal past. It's just common courtesy. In spite of the fact they we are bicyclist, we are also technically 'motorized vehicles' and as such an affront to some of those who use the trails for the purpose they were constructed.
