Regarding the letter by Max Sestil Jr. (“Signs Should Provide Rules for Cyclists in Various Zones,” Dec. 2):

My friend and I often visit family in Oakland. When we take our bicycles for a ride in Schenley Park, we certainly do not go on the Boulevard of the Allies but take the sidewalk across the Anderson Bridge. Near the swimming pool is a tunnel that crosses under the boulevard. It seems like a no-brainer to use the sidewalk and the tunnel for the safest route to get around the area. Also the new sidewalk between Oakland and Greenfield is wide enough to accommodate both walkers and bikers safely. 

There has never been a situation where we have caused a problem for pedestrians going over the bridges. They see us coming and we see them. It’s simple.

Why would we go on the main bridge streets and have cars blowing horns at us and swerving around us and becoming angry because they didn’t see us?
