Thanks, but it doesn't matter how many lanes there are when it's busy and full of port traffic...the sidewalk becomes a much safer place to be at those times for some riders. Lots of us have families and will gladly ride the sidewalk on roads like this if it means a safer crossing. It's also 9am on New Year's Day so there's little to no traffic, which is why we chose this route. Just because there's a couple "Share the Road" signs and a few "sharrows" painted on the pavement doesn't immediately mean traffic will cut you some slack, whether we think they should or not.
