    Why are bicycles allowed on the road?

    Someone aware me as to why it is illegal for a bicycle to ride on the sidewalk. Why are they supposed to ride on the road?

    IMO, a cyclist on the road is a nuisance, and a danger to himself. I see this all the time. Usually, there is an unused sidewalk that the cyclist could be using, but instead he's on the road, slowing down traffic and creating an unsafe environment for himself and the cars that have to either drive within a couple feet of him, or slow down and change lanes to avoid him.

    Why aren't bicycles supposed to ride on the sidewalk? It just seems so much safer to me. Usually sidewalks aren't being used. If there is a person walking on the sidewalk, it isn't hard to just slow down and ride around them.

    Now before someone points out that that is the same thing I just said a second ago for cars, my point is that if there were ever a collision between bicycle and pedestrian on a sidewalk, it would almost always result in less injury than a collision between a cyclist and an automobile on the road.

    Someone aware me on why the law is the way it is. Just doesn't make sense to me.

    because they have every right to use public roads just as much as you do. I use sidewalks when they are not crowded but if I have to then I stick to the right side of the road. I rarely see cyclists bother cars as they are not in the way.

    however sometimes I like to cut off cars just to be an asshat and when they beep I just smile and finger them as they are stuck in the red light and I can safely speed up.


    HAHAHA im awesome.

    side walks are annoying to run / bike on. next time you're driving notice how many drive ways and **** there are.

    Plus bikes have just as much right to the road as drivers. Just because you're in a car doesn't mean you own the road / get to not pay attention. Just the other day I almost got hit in a intersection crosswalk by a woman driver because she wasn't paying attention.

    The argument that bikes have a "right to be on the road" doesn't make sense to me really. Who said they had a right to be there? The same people that made these rules up that I am arguing against in this thread. So that's just kind of circular logic that's not going to get us anywhere in this debate.

    Don't get me wrong, I used to be really into biking. Had a Gary Fisher etc. But I would never ride on the road. I always rode on the sidewalk and took my chances of getting a fine. It just seemed a million times safer to me.

    Don't have to worry about a driver not paying attention for a second and running you over.

    You have to yield to pedestrians on crosswalks and at intersections, are you against them using roads too?

    ATV's, snowmobiles, airplanes, helicopters, tanks etc are all vehicles. Just because something is considered a "vehicle" doesn't mean it should be on the road with cars/trucks.

    eh, try to stay on the sidewalk when I can, but sometimes I just have to get on the road.

    I'm not one of those annoying bikers that lieks to take up the WHOLE right lane, you know, i'll be nice, or if someobody is behind me , slowing down, I migh tmake a motion for them to go ahead and get in front of me...basically I try my best to follow the rules of the road.


    More bike lanes would be great, because sometimes the sidewalk is full of pedestrians.

    I love my hybrid bike tho, best of both worlds, the mountain bike and the road bike...

    i live in a college town, it's especially bad here, i just see more similarities between a pedestrian and someone on a bike, if someone on a bike hits someone walking there could definitely be injuries, but if someone in a car hits someone on a bike, obviously larger chance for more serious injuries
    It is well that war is so terrible — lest we should grow too fond of it.

    yeah well obviously some things aren't suppose to be on the road like tanks haha. but i unno, a lot of cities around where i am ive noticed have been adding bike lanes which makes riding a lot safer for people.


    And when people go out on long bike rides in the country etc where are they suppose to ride? in the ditch haha? To be honest i've never had a problem when encountering people riding on the side of the road when I am driving. Either I just have to slow down and wait for it to be safe to pass or just give them some extra room as I go by.

    yep. a road was just repaved and widened that i drive everyday to work. there are two cyclist that i pass everyday in the morning. there is no sidewalk or bike lane. i don't see why the gov. didn't put a bike lane in when they widened the street. how much more would it really cost to put an extra couple feet on both sides? would have made it better for everyone.

    yeah most of the time whenever i see a problem with a cyclist is a group of kids riding around town (all over the fkn road) like morons. I've never seen a problem with those serious road bike cyclists

    IMO, a cyclist on the road is a nuisance, and a danger to himself. I see this all the time. Usually, there is an unused sidewalk that the cyclist could be using, but instead he's on the road, slowing down traffic and creating an unsafe environment for himself and the cars that have to either drive within a couple feet of him, or slow down and change lanes to avoid him.

    Why aren't bicycles supposed to ride on the sidewalk? It just seems so much safer to me. Usually sidewalks aren't being used. If there is a person walking on the sidewalk, it isn't hard to just slow down and ride around them.

    Now before someone points out that that is the same thing I just said a second ago for cars, my point is that if there were ever a collision between bicycle and pedestrian on a sidewalk, it would almost always result in less injury than a collision between a cyclist and an automobile on the road.

    Someone aware me on why the law is the way it is. Just doesn't make sense to me.
    It is easy to maintain a pace on a bike, but frequent starting/stopping wastes time and energy. It's much easier for them to ride on the road, hence they do.

    I don't think it's unsafe or a great nuisance for them to be on the road.


    Next you suggest motorbikes go on the pavement because they get in the way and are less safe to ride than cars? You need more motive than that to argue this point.

    I agree, cyclists are a huge hazard. There are a million side streets to ride their bikes, yet they are always riding on busy ass roads during rush hour. It's not safe for cyclist or driver. Laws need to be changed to ban them.


    Besides, 99% of the people I see on bicycles need to get off the bike and eat a damn steak dinner.

    Motorcycles don't go 25 in a 45 and motorcycles don't ride BESIDE the car lane. Not even close to being a valid comparison.

    It is a tough issue. In an ideal world there would be bike paths everywhere. I once lived in a city with them and biked far more often becaues of it.

    I don't feel safe biking on the road. One fall possibly ends my life.


    Biking on the sidewalk would be a pissoff though if you have to slow down/maneuvre around pedestrians all the time.


    Look up cities like Amsterdam or Paris where biking is huge. Bike paths everywhere, that is the way to go, but requires big infrastructure and pre-planning. Now that communities and roads are built, theres nowhere to put bike paths. Sucks.

    Point still stands... nuisance is not a reason to make road bikes go on pavement
