The side-ride vs the sidewalk

November 7, 2010

Being a pedestrian in a new city has brought my dislike of cyclists using the sidewalk to a new level. After nearly being run over by a cyclist while walking on the sidewalk, I was asked what my problem was. I simply stated,”its a sidewalk not a side ride” and went on about my business. If you want to ride a bike it should be on the street. If you are on the sidewalk with your bike I request that you dismount and walk. If you feel unsafe riding your bike – especially on freaking Main Street in Vancouver – because traffic is nuts maybe an alternative route should be selected.
