Today I thought I might share a pet peeve with you.
ALL YOU ADULTS THAT RIDE BICYCLES ON THE SIDEWALK: GET OFF!
Seriously? Is it just me? Riding a bicycle on the sidewalk is for children … only. Once you’ve mastered bike riding, you should be riding on the street. If you don’t feel safe then stick to bike paths but don’t take up space on the sidewalks. Sidewalks are for people to walk on!
I have an ebike (electric bike), I’ve mentioned it here before. I really enjoy my ebike, and I totally get all the positives about it. The other day, I’m driving home (after visiting my mom) and I notice that there’s a big man on his ebike riding on the sidewalk. What the heck?! You’ve got to be kidding me! An ebike, compared to a ten speed bicycle, is HUGE … can you picture one on the sidewalk? Ok, now picture a big man on one, on the sidewalk! Whoa, what a sight to see. Get the heck off the sidewalk!! For real!! You might end up hurting someone!
My pet peeve is a little one and I don’t have much to say about it. I will say this … well, I’ll ask this: Please tell every adult that rides their bike on the sidewalk (those that you know) to please stop doing so. It’s not cool, it’s not right, and it’s not safe.
