In New York City, it is generally illegal to ride a bicycle on the sidewalk, with an exception. Bicycles should be ridden in the street, not on the sidewalks. However, there is an exemption for riders who are 12 years old or younger and whose bicycle's wheels are less than 26 inches in diameter. These young riders are allowed to bike on the sidewalk. For riders above the age of 12 and with larger bicycles, it is important to ride in the street, follow traffic rules, ride with the flow of traffic, and obey red lights and stop signs to ensure safe and legal cycling in NYC.
