I've had quite a few experiences where I realized I was still making a hiker nervous even though I had already slowed down to a point that felt comical. Best analogy I can use would be the way it feels when you've been driving at 120 kph and then abruptly enter a city street where the speed limit is 50. You may still be going 80 and think you're crawling, but that's not how others perceive you. And non-riders really don't know how quickly we can slow down, but they also usually don't have time to perceive whether we see them and are adjusting to be able to get around them or not. So, when approaching hikers now, I slow down. And then often slow down again.
