    “good thing sidewalks are for pedestrians, not bicyclists.”

    Under Florida law, bicyclists are perfectly welcome on sidewalks. This is good because they are apt to get run over on the roads.

    The 2017 Florida Statutes

    Title XXIII
    Chapter 316

    316.2065 Bicycle regulations.—

    (9) A person propelling a vehicle by human power upon and along a sidewalk, or across a roadway upon and along a crosswalk, has all the rights and duties applicable to a pedestrian under the same circumstances.
    (10) A person propelling a bicycle upon and along a sidewalk, or across a roadway upon and along a crosswalk, shall yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian and shall give an audible signal before overtaking and passing such pedestrian.

    David for safer cyclists
