We have more and more bicycle paths and lanes being developed in our city. Given the choice, where do you ride? Again, I quote my comment in "8 ball is ok" It is illegal to ride on most sidewalks in my Canadian city, but I still do. ( they don't enforce too strongly, especially if you have grey hair and are riding a 65 year old Schwinn or Rollfast). I also ride a motorcycle and the average automobile driver doesn't even look for 2 wheeled riders. You should see the crazy cyclists riding on snow and ice at 30 below with the CARS!! It only took me a few times crashing on ice to get the hint?
