Apparently, I've been breaking the law for the last few months.

Yesterday I read a Post Bulletin article which cited a state law that says bikes cannot be ridden on sidewalks in business districts - that would include downtown Rochester.

Did you know this rule existed? I had no idea.

I love riding my bike to work in downtown Rochester. Most days I ride in on the sidewalks. I feel much safer on the sidewalks because I ride in at 5 a.m. when motorists are only half-awake. There are hardly any pedestrians at that hour so I think i'm OK but who knows I might end up getting a ticket one morning.

Do you feel safe riding on the streets in Rochester?
