There's a sidewalk. You have to walk your bike (riding it is forbidden).
The sidewalk is raised a good 9 inches from the road surface, but it is relatively narrow and there is no other barrier between the sidewalk and the roadway. So walking bikes only allows people to pass, and keeps anyone from falling off their bikes into the road (which with the proximity and speed of traffic would be a certain boo-boo).
