What's working for businesses in 2021?
We're currently experiencing delivery disruptions throughout Newfoundland due to production delays, but expect things to be resolved by April 17th, 12:00PM. Thanks for your patience.
Here is a simple answer to Mr. Rod MacDonald of Morell (How to alert a horse, Feb. 20) of the protocols when approaching a horse and rider anywhere — and it goes for humans and bike riders as well, when approaching from behind.
Under no circumstances should you yell or use your bell. When approaching from behind at a safe distance, you announce yourself saying, "Bicycle behind," then the horse and the rider will know that you are behind and will make way for you.
That is the way it works all over the world and it is a courteous way to get along with all people using the trail. I don't see any reasons why bikers and horseback riders cannot share a trail. I travelled all over North America and Europe and never saw a problem.
I hope I clarified this small problem of yours as it is simple common sense and protocol.
