Walkers can be rude too

SIR – After reading about the lady complaining about bikers on the Tarka Trail, I should like to point out that it is predominantly a cycle trail and is in the national network. I can understand her feelings about some so-called bikers and their rudeness

I can understand her feelings about some so-called bikers and their rudeness but PLEASE don't tar ALL of us with the same brush. I have come across many rude, ignorant, uncaring, couldn't-care-less dog owners, and I try to remember it's not the dog that's at fault.

So next time a cyclist goes past, just give a thought to what may have occurred just before he or she went past you. At least they ring their bell, I always say "thanks" and we are not all RUDE.
