When hiking with my kids, we always stop and give bikers the right of way - it's simpler and less stressful like that.

The alternative is that the kids see the bike too late (if at at all) and at least one child will move to the opposite side of the path than the others - and then swap sides at the last moment.

We don't get slowed down - we're slow anyway and the bikers don't get slowed down either. They almost always thank us with a smile.

It's no big deal.

Tom, most people see it that way but you'll find others who are less courteous. As annoying as my little bell is, it helps me to warn pedestrians who walk in groups that I'm coming. And then I pass with a Gruezi or a Danke.
