    Yesterday and today, I pedaled over to Pioneer Park, just to get out of the house for a bit. On the way home, both times, I stopped and picked up the mandatory beer for an after ride drink.

    There is a sidewalk on each side of the bridge, having pedaled over the bridge myself. It's just hidden by the guardrails in Google's Streetview.

    No. By law, you are required to use the cycle pathways. That's why they (the bike paths) are there. There are some routes in residential areas where motorists are "the guests of cyclists" and can use...

    Back off and let them go ahead of you, before proceeding through the intersection. That's how I handle a similar intersection where I live.

    I would consider you car free, as you do not own a car (or any other motor vehicle), instead catching rides with family if required.
