Coming home yesterday, a young man about driving age or older was riding his bike on the sidewalk, and I was riding mine in the lane.
"Get on the sidewalk!" he corrected me.
I replied, "Bicycles are legal vehicles on Georgia roads."
"For real?" he asked. I could tell by the look in his eyes and the tone of his voice that this really was the first time he heard the news.
It made me wonder how widespread the myth is that cyclists actually belong on the sidewalk. I wonder if people who shout, "Get on the sidewalk!" from their car windows actually think they are correct.
