Re "On a mission to get bikes off sidewalks" (The Conversation, Aug. 17): I was thrilled to read Hillary Abramson's article in The Bee about getting bikes off the sidewalks. I, and my 16-pound dog, have been almost hit more times downtown than I can remember.

I lived at 5th and N streets and walked him 5 to 10 blocks to Capitol Park every morning and evening, and I cannot tell you how many times bikes came racing around corners and almost killed my dog. When I would yell at them about riding on the street, I heard everything from middle fingers pointed at me to cursing to one person who told me to mind my own business.

I moved out of downtown to Elk Grove and there are no bikes on sidewalks here. You couldn't pay me to go back downtown.
