I love seeing all who enjoy the Chandler bike path — from casual walkers to serious exercisers, to four leggers and the occasional star gazers.
I do not enjoy those who seem to possess a sense of self-serving entitlement, believing they are entitled to not pick up after their pets or that their fitness goals entitle their behavior to come before anyone else’s. Some families feel that children in strollers somehow entitle them to take charge of the path, forcing others to step aside. There are even those who feel entitled to appoint themselves judge and jury when they encounter problems or safety concerns, only to promote their own personal agendas in this public space.
I’d like to believe people who live, work and play in Burbank are special. My hope is that we remember how to smile at others and be considerate. Please try to ask yourself if you would want to encounter you on a walk or a run or a bike ride.
