Am I allowed to ride my bicycle on the sidewalk in Florida?

Generally, Florida law is that you can’t ride your bicycle on the sidewalk, but I say, where the law and common sense conflict, common sense should prevail. I tell people, the smart thing is to ride your bike on the sidewalk in bad traffic situations. I tell people, even though it’s probably a violation of the law, to ride against traffic, so you can see oncoming vehicles. Where the law and common sense conflict, common sense should prevail.
