Using The West End Bike Lane

Dear Editor,

I was walking my dog on the bike lane at 138 Street when a bike rider yelled at me to curb my dog.

On 138 Street the bike lane is almost wider than the car lane. I do not scream at other people riding their bikes, "You didn't stop for that red light!" or "You're going in the wrong direction!" so I do not appreciate when they yell at me, "You're not curbing your dog!" Does he observe all the bike riding rules, like stopping at red lights, using hand singles when turning right or left? It is really getting ridiculous. I am obeying the law; I looked up the "curb your dog" ordinance and it means just what it says, your dog must do his business in the curb on the street, not on the sidewalk. Not once has a police cruiser said anything to me about being off the curb. That bike rider turned an enjoyable walk with my dog into a very upsetting situation. Can't we all get along and try to be nice to one another? It's not so hard.
