This sidewalk's made for walkin'

Posted on Fri, Aug 17, 2012 at 9:43 AM

This bitch is directed at two things: 1) nervous bikers that take to the sidewalk 2) this city's lack of bikelanes, forcing nervous bikers to take to the sidewalk. So there I am, minding my own business, blissfully dancing my way to work care of J.Plaskett's snappy tunes when out of the blue---FLASH---a bike sweeps past me on the sidewalk with no warning, scaring the bejeesus outta me and causing me to lose my balance! I know that there are no bikes lanes in most of this damned city, I know that you too, Mr. Biker are scared to drive on the street (I would be too!) but that doesn't give you the right to transfer your fear to innocent pedestrians. Either use your bike properly on the street, or perhaps you should be walking as well. There is but one obvious solution, but until the HRM provides those desperately needed bikelanes, if you are riding the 2-wheeled beast please remember that the sidewalks are for walkers and lovers, and not for scardy-pants bikers! —Walky McDancewalker
