Put bikes back on sidewalks

Red Deer must have a few hundred kilometres of sidewalks which other than down town, are mostly empty.

When I was young, I was told by my parents “don’t ride on the street and stay on the sidewalk.” When did that become illegal?

It seems to me that we could have saved a lot of money if a yellow line was painted down the middle of a sidewalk that you are allowed to ride your bike on.

The city trail system has the yellow line concept so why not the sidewalks? If there is no yellow line on the sidewalk, you can’t ride your bike on that sidewalk. I think our children would be much safer riding on the sidewalk.
