If cyclists want to use the roads, obey the traffic laws

I’m all for cyclists to have rights to our roads in Red Deer, but they need to follow the laws of the roads.

I’m all for cyclists to have rights to our roads in Red Deer, but they need to follow the laws of the roads.

What gives them the right to ride on the sidewalks and then just zip across the road or through the lights from the sidewalk?

As a driver, I’m looking for walkers on the sidewalk and then this cyclist comes doing 10k across, through the light on the wrong side of the road off the sidewalk.

If you want the roads, put brake lights and a mirror on your bike and be accountable for the laws of the roads.

What’s with cyclists in the dead of winter on snow?
