Sidewalk Bikers | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Sidewalk Bikers

Sidewalk bikers need to stay in the bike lane.

Here's a clue, because you obviously missed all the other ones. If you look down and see small horizontal lines across the pavement, if everyone around you is on foot, if you see store fronts on one side and cars on the other, you may be on a sidewalk. This is a portion of public right of way between the street and the adjacent private property. God put it here so that folks can walk around unmolested by cars, trains, plans, and, yes, bikes. Don't worry though, he didn't forget out you; he made bike lanes - right next to the sidewalk. So take your cruiser down to the street where the good lord intended. If you need to cross the sidewalk, get off your bike and walk like the rest of us. Either that or let me know when you're going for a jog so I can get on my bike and ride your ass for four miles around town. You wouldn't mind that right?
