NO NO NO you NEVER ride against the traffic!!! Only idiots do that! You could not react in time anyway! Simple physics dictate riding WITH the traffic! In todays world of distracted drivers the only real solution is a protected bike path bt that would costly. You can't ride performance bikes on the sidewalk either. The sidewalks are too narrow and NOT smooth at all and would destroy the skinny high performance wheels!

I agree, have the bicyclist ride with traffic the previous post instead of riding against traffic. Or have them ride on the sidewalks in the same direction as traffic. I've seen too many people walking or riding with traffic and not paying attention to what is going around them while on the road instead of the sidewalks. Drivers are suppose to watch out ahead of them but sometimes the bike riders and pedestrians walk/ride wherever they please, and drivers are not paying attention so this is where the accidents happen.

The only suggestion I have to make it safer for bikers is to let them ride against traffic not with it. That way they can see drunk drivers and/or distracted drivers in their side lane and take action to avoid them. Riding with traffic when you doing 30 mph and the rest are doing 65 mph is recipe for disaster. Allowing them to face the traffic gives them chance to avoid bad drivers.
