I pulled up to the stop sign guy and he said " Mate, use the footpath". I questioned why, starting to get defensive.
He replied" Well, you could sit here and wait for more than 5 minutes or you could go around the roadworks right now, by using the footpath"
I rode off to work silently scolding myself for being a w*nker. He was just trying to help me out.
Just in case you weren't aware, it's actually legal to ride on the footpath in Queensland. IMO that should be nationwide.
+1 to il padrone re being directed to the wrong side of the road.
