Ask a Trooper - Is it legal to ride a bike on sidewalks?

Email News Alerts

Question: I really enjoy your articles and read them every week. I am 13 years old and like riding my bike around town. I like to be safe so I wear a helmet and try to be very careful. I am wondering if it is legal to ride a bike on the sidewalks in town or should I try to stay on the road? I like to stay on the sidewalks in the downtown area because of all the traffic, but in residential areas I ride on the road.
