You mean the part that says "A person propelling a vehicle by human power upon and along a sidewalk, or across a roadway upon and along a crosswalk, has all the rights and duties applicable to a pedestrian under the same circumstances"?

Florida law basically is that a bike is a vehicle on the street, but a pedestrian on the sidewalk and in crosswalks. Nothing in there about directions on sidewalks. Local ordinances can vary however.

In my opinion, Florida law is a mess.
