His sudden recovery is a little convenient.

When did sidewalks start having directional traffic?
For pedestrians it isn't a problem, but as has been demonstrated in this account if one is riding their bicycle not only on the sidewalk but against traffic. Why it of dangerous to do so.

Think about it, had the person riding their bike in the road and with the flow of traffic odds are nothing would have happened to them.
