I have a dirty little secret. I ride my bike on the sidewalk sometimes. It’s not my fault, really. I blame the transportation engineers who didn’t consider bikes when they designed the roads. I only do it for short stretches when there’s no safe alternative, and I slow down or stop for walkers. Please don’t judge me.
