Back in July, the Burlingame Police Department reminded residents that if they're biking on the sidewalks, they're doing something wrong.
Police had received a growing number of complaints from residents regarding cyclists on the sidewalks and the collision hazards they cause to both pedestrians and vehicles.
The Burlingame Police Department at the time provided this excerpt explaining proper bicycle usage from the City’s municipal code:
13.52.100 Keeping to right—Two abreast—Riding on sidewalks: Every person riding or operating a bicycle on any public street, alley or public place in the city shall keep to the extreme right of the traffic lane, and it is unlawful for two (2) or more bicycles to travel abreast. It is unlawful for any person to ride or operate a bicycle on the sidewalk in any of the business districts of the city, and no bicycle shall be operated on the sidewalk in any of the residential districts when and where the sidewalk is being used by pedestrians. (1941 Code § 1476)
Since then, there has been further discussion on the topic. The City has posted a survey on its website asking residents to help build the Burlingame policy on bikes.
