Really would you walk with your grandchildren on the highway with your back to a truck and be shocked with they sound a fog horn??? Sorry to say you are completely wrong and put your grandchildren in danger. Walkers on the paths of course are entitled to be there but are not entitled...
In the southern section there are beautiful wide paths where walkers, bike riders etc use. No golf carts. I
They are not on the street at all. So the children were never on the street at all or in danger.

They came before this mess and it would be dangerous for them to go home. Thank you for asking.

This sure has been an entertaining thread to read. Too funny! Every time I hear a cyclist called a biker I can't help laughing.
Biker = person riding a motorcycle
Cyclist = person riding a bicycle
Friendliest Hometown = An antiquated myth that hasn't applied for several years now.
If people can't exercise the self control to NOT swear and use foul language in front of CHILDREN, maybe they should remove themselves from society.
If everyone lived by the Golden Rule, the world would be a so much nicer place. Unfortunately, there will always be mean, rude, power hungry, nasty people for the rest of us to deal with. Such is life.
Karma has no menu. You get served what you deserve. Peace!

Why? Because it makes them feel in control?! Not good especially in front of little kids. That person was so wrong and needs to control her attitude or stay indoors.

They are not here on vacation.
Stress or no stress I am HORRIFIED at what seem people think is appropriate language. I wish people who talked that way knew how classless, immature, and uneducated it makes them seem. I am not guiltless, but I sure do wish we could keep that language out of villages!

Sorry, biker=1%er ie. outlaw. We riders prefer “motorcycle enthusiast” or sport bike riders, trail bike riders etc

Please see the title of the OP's post.

So now, there are a lot of unanswered questions

Was it a MMP or not?
Were they walking on the wrong side or not?
Did they have the 5&6 year old kids under control or not?
What was in the stroller? A dog????
Was there any traffic of any kind coming the other way that the cyclist may have seen but not them?

The cyclist lost all credibility by using her potty mouth

However, we haven't heard the other side. Is it possible this cyclist was approaching 2 adults, 2 children and a stroller who were all over the path and did nothing to get out of the way when she rang her bell, saw people on the other side of the path so she couldn't go around, and lost it?

I don't think so, since the OP sounds very reasonable, but none of us know for sure. The one thing we know is the cyclist used vulgar language, or at least we think we know......

Hurrah, so so true. I believe cussing in public to me is crude anyway. It shows no respect. People like think they are entitled. Better than anyone. But they are the lowest people usually.

Definitely. But I am not the one saying people "must be bored". Nice try, though.
