So how do I get all the sidewalk riders in my part of town to stop riding on the sidewalks? It sets up the expectation of motorists that I am doing it wrong when I ride vehicularly in the street.
Thus the guys riding "wrong" feel they are doing it right, while I get the honks and yelling...
I have passed out fliers at local bike shops and the library, that point to the Bike Expert web page... But I doubt that these utility riders and students even go to bike shops.
Certainly I can't stop each and every one and try to convince them to ride correctly...
So I bear the brunt of the motorists opinions that the "other cyclists" are doing it right and I am doing it wrong.
This is one clear case where more butts on saddles does NOT pay off.
BTW for the record, there are no bike lanes involved. These are narrow old streets lined with parked cars.
