Don't ride on sidewalk

To all of you who use bicycles as your mode of transportation, I would like to offer some advice—don't ride on the sidewalk on the wrong side of the highway and for goodness sake, please wear a helmet.

I had a horrible experience recently turning onto Highway 97 and out of the corner of my eye, (I saw) was a young man barreling down the sidewalk on the wrong side of the road.

The sound of the crash still rings in my ears. Luckily, he was not injured but my nerves are still shattered, not to mention the damage to my car. There’s nothing like having your whole back passenger window fall on to the back seat and wondering if the person was alive.

Thankfully, he was OK, but I will never forget this moment and now I have nightmares because of it.
