Here we go again... This question always turns into a debate, & many get offended, or their feelings hurt.
Its illegal in my area, but seniors, & children get the green light from me.
Our infrastructure is not up to par, but its improving every year.
I'm purely road, regardless of the traffic around me.
If I meet up with a friend who is a pedestrian, I dismount, & walk my bike on the sidewalk.
Same goes for anytime I need to use a sidewalk, or busy crosswalk. If its not busy, I unclip 1 foot, & scoot.
Its just common courtesy IMO, people on sidewalks don't expect to encounter cyclists, so it can lead to a messy situation.
My 1st post in this subforum, & my $0.02 regarding this subject.
Not purely car free, but 80-85% car free.
