The Question:

The above picture shows a person bicycling along a roadway, moving back and forth between the bike lane and sidewalk. Is it legal for a bicyclist to move back and forth between a bike lane and sidewalk?

The Answer: YES, BUT

A bicyclist has the freedom to move back and forth between a bike lane and a sidewalk where city ordinance allows. This is legal only if the bicyclist yields and gives and audible signal to pedestrians. A bicyclist may not suddenly move into the path of a vehicle nor operate a bicycle in a careless manner when entering or leaving a bike lane or sidewalk.

This answer is based onĀ Idaho state code 49-721 (1)(2).
