Cyclists from my pedestrian point of view

Posted on Thu, Aug 20, 2009 at 4:47 PM

Okay - When I am walking down the sidewalk, I DO NOT mind, stepping aside for half a second, to allow a person on a bicycle to pass me. I know Halifax has its panties all up in a bunch about people riding bikes. The pedestrians, and the drivers. Drivers, I understand a bit more. It certainly is frustrating when your told to share the road with a cyclist, who then gets to a cross walk, and decides to become a pedestrian. I understand. But what I DONT understand, is whats wrong with the assholes on the sidewalk that bitch about people riding bikes on the sidewalk!! What the hell? When I am walking down the sidewalk, i certainly do not mind moving out of the way for a split second of my life, to allow a cyclist to pass, instead of having them riding in the road, next to insanely angry drivers, like my boyfriend, who wants to run every single one of them over because they are so irritating, at no fault of their own i might add! since they are told they MUST ride in the street! The chance of me getting killed by someone riding a bicyle on the sidewalk, is MUCH less, then the chances of the person on the bicycle getting killed by riding in the streets.

Why cant we just share the sidewalks?!?! SERIOUSLY?!??!!?
