So Many Sidewalks, So Little Time To Go Salmoning Upon Sidewalks – Uh, Franklin Street Isn’t Good For Salmoning

So yeah, I’ve been riding bikes on the Streets of San Francisco on an almost-daily basis since the 1980′s, right?

But this isn’t the way you do it:

First of all, this gal came down Franklin Street against traffic from Golden Gate Ave to McAllister and that’s just wrong. ‘Cause cyclists have the right to use both the left and right sides of Franklin so it’s never a good thing to be going the wrong way in the street on that block.

And then she hopped onto the eastern sidewalk as she continued south past the Herbst. Illegal sidewalk pedalers need to realize that they’re second class citizens, right? Because she was going the wrong way and she got locked into this fenced-off sidewalk, there would be nowhere to go if a group of peds had been coming the other way.

So, if you are going to ride on sidewalks, this isn’t how you do it.

Just saying, Brocephus.

    I try to avoid being on the sidewalk on a bike, but when I do my rule is go walking speed and get off the bike and walk it if peds are close by with little room. My goal is to not make them think about getting hit (or think that bikers are jerks).
