Can we please not have such idiotic, negative and condemning views towards others posted here.
Cycling on footpaths is legal in some Australian states and is commonplace in Japan for example. Furthermore there are some footpaths designated shared paths despite the fact that they otherwise are identical to regular footpaths. Riding on footpaths does not make you a bloody idiot!
(Yes, I have ridden on footpaths very occasionally for various reasons from safety to convenience until I can safely enter the road. Naturally I have ridden at an appropriate speed and give pedestrians a wide berth. Footpaths are slow and are usually dangerous to ride at anything more than jogging pace so I avoid.)
