Opinion: Truckee River Legacy Trail is for everyone to enjoy

In this era of mis/dis-information, I have to take exception to the March 27 Sierra Sun letter to the editor, “High-speed bikers making Truckee River Legacy Trail unsafe,” about bicyclists on the Legacy Trail.

Even the most elite bicyclists cannot attain speeds to which the author alludesŠ (30-45 mph) — they don’t live here!

I am a bicyclist. This is what I encounter: dogs off lease, ­not under voice command; strollers three abreast, not paying attention to anyone; joggers with earphones who can’t hear anyone announcing their presence; and folks out enjoying the beauty, the magnificence of where we live who are respectful of others using this wonderful trail.

The Legacy Trail is for all — be kind, not misinformed.
