I'm an extremely unexperienced rider -- I just got my first bike in years today -- and I'm not really aware of the bike laws around Portland. Today, on my way home from a friends I got scolded by two horse-riding cops just off the Hawthorne Bridge near First Avenue who told me I need to walk my bike if on the sidewalk. But on the link below it clearly states otherwise:
"Go Slow on Sidewalks. Pedestrians have the right of way on walkways. By law, you must give them an audible warning when you pass. Cross driveways and intersections at a walker's pace and look carefully for traffic
(especially traffic turning right.)"
What's the truth? Where can I find a list of laws about what I can and can't do in the city?
