"Cycling on the sidewalk just isn't safe. It actually increases your chances of getting hit by a car."

Unsafe would be right, cuz it sure increases the cyclist's chances of hurting a pedestrian. People have died from head injuries sustained after being knocked over by cyclists. I've been hit twice by a bike while walking on the sidewalk , & it HURTS!

The last time this happened, I applied the bike 1st to the curbcut, & then to the upper body of the nincompoop who was riding it. (He had 20 feet of pavement to safely ride around me.)

It is illegal to ride a bike on the sidewalk.

All those who get upset about cars & trucks impinging on their bike lanes, should understand why pedestrians don't want to share the sidewalk with bikes.
