Goofus and Gallant, Bike Trail Etiquette

9/20/11 #233 22miles

Rode with K, Bastille, 31st Street Bridge, Strip Trail, Ft. Pitt Bridge, Station Square Trail, Southside Trail, Hot Metal Bridge, Jail Trail, Ft. Duquesne Bridge, Casino Trail.

I've been trying to smoooooooth out my signalling technique, I've been ringing the bell at about 40feet, then again at 30 feet, and then (if there's no visible response) I use the AirZounds air horn at 20 feet. The problem is, the airhorn at 20 feet is a violent surprise to most people, and so I'm working on ringing/Zounding earlier.

Which brings this Goofus and Gallant to mind:

We stopped to check out the newly opened Cafe at the Point in Point State Park. The green walls, with living plants as part of the structure, were very cool.
