Bikes on sidewalks throughout the City:

Currently, only small bikes (with tires of 20” diameter or smaller) are allowed to be ridden on any sidewalk in the City. The proposed change would allow them to be ridden—in a safe manner—on sidewalks throughout the City. Advantage: This would allow middle-school students on larger bikes and families with children to ride on sidewalks. Disadvantage: This may create conflicts between bicyclists and walkers or joggers.
