In this episode, Gene and Patrick take sidewalk cyclists to task. Amber tries to be a little more understanding. They argue it's unsafe for pedestrians, and actually illegal in business districts. It's also unsafe for riders who merge into traffic from sidewalks. But what about young kids?

Also, cycling is such a great social activity, but what about when your relatives are visiting from out of town? The crew has some tips on destinations, and handling fearful or finicky riders.

And a cyclist has a question about what's missing from the Twin Cities biking scene.
