Letter: Why not convert sidewalks for bike riding all over city?
To the editor:
Most streets in Kelowna include sidewalks on either side of the street.
Do we need to use both sidewalks for walking? How about using one side for bikes?
When I suggested that to city hall over a year ago the reply was that Kelowna had increased the number of bike paths for bicycles and that the law does not allow for bike riding on sidewalks.
So—change the law.
Bikes are allowed along the Abbott Street walkway which was made wider to include bikes.
Take one side of any city street that has two sidewalks and call one of them a bike-walk or whatever.
I bet the number of people riding to work or simply for enjoyment will increase tremendously. Why not try it?
