Wish I had a picture of this from a more innocuous angle. I'm sure to the walker or driver's perspective, this is a very nice looking sidewalk, wide enough for cycles and a reasonably safe, smooth surface. Up *to* that point, it *was* - so the rider doesn't even think "okay, surface change, possible hazards."
From this angle, though, you can imagine - and some have experienced - that a bicycle can be sent out of control, instantly, at considerable expense and damage to cycle and/or its driver.
Yo! At least mark the thing! And don't wonder why I'd rather ride in the road.
