I am polite but if I do swear, I’m not looking around first.
Basically what many folks call the "golf cart path." Multi-modal refers to the FACT that it can be used by any "mode" of transportation from feet to wheels and NOT reserved for golf carts.

Thank you. She was vile.

EVERYONE serves a purpose in life. Her purpose was to serve as a bad example. Teaching moment right there for the kids on how ugly some people can be.

This is a MULTI MODAL pathway, not a road or a street. You do not have to walk into the traffic and you do not have to walk in a single file. First words are MULTI MODAL, not cart, bike, roller blades or anything else. It also does not say anything about a transportation street, road, boulevard, alley or anything near. It is for multi, which for you who do not understand means many with no limit to the means of movement. If she wanted to pass and did not have room, wait until you have room and pass.

If it had been me, my ugly side might have come out and she would have accidently fallen off her bike!!!!

And as such adults are also subject to the consequences of their words and actions!

Speaking for a friend, someone I know would have cussed her back in three languages and shoved her bike up where the sun doesn't shine.

That is true, there is no law against being rude and unfriendly.

Bikers ride single file with traffic. Walkers ,walk on sidewalks where available, or facing traffic where they arent. Just follow the rules for everybody's safety. Easy peasy

There is good reason to walk on the left side of the multimodal paths. It is a matter of safety. If a cart is coming, you can see it and avoid it if the driver is inattentive. Sometimes you can’t hear them coming from behind, especially those electric golf carts. This is the same reason that you should walk on the left side if you are walking down a road that has no sidewalks. I’d rather have to jump to the side than be hit from behind without warning.

Now as to the woman riding her bike, there really is no excuse for her behavior. I am a cyclist and ride the multimodal paths often. Whenever I pass someone I give them a cheerful good morning or good afternoon. I guess I’d rather brighten someone’s day than bring them down.
