My husband and I enjoy walking on the West Dyke to Garry Point Park.
We maintain a safe distance by walking as far to the right as possible. We smile and exchange greetings with people who approach us and are doing the same on the other side of the path.
However, we have not experienced the same with cyclists and joggers who approach us from behind.
They almost always pass us on the left down the middle of the path (an unsafe distance) instead of going as far over as possible.
I implore people passing to do so as safely, and as far away, as possible.
