Those motherfuckers ought to on the road or if available, in the cyclist lane.

Plus they are cyclists.

The bridge I cross every day doesn't have a cycle lane, cyclists have to share the sidewalk with pedestrians because the bridge is too narrow. I'd get run over if I rode across it on the road.

Here (at least in some states), cyclists are not allow to ride on the footpath; legally they have to be on the road; the breadth of the rode is irrelevant.
Unless the cyclists in question are children, they are allowed to ride on the footpath.

I'd say that's an insane law, but then again, some cities in Ontario have bylaws to the same effect.

But it's pretty simple regardless. Obey traffic rules if you're on the road and pedestrian rules if you're on the path. I'm not sure what about this manages to confuse people, but I've certainly encountered a few who seemed a little confused...

... this is my signature!

What! Muffs is coming to America and he is leaving Australia because people dinning out don't know how to walk on bridges, WTF!

Welcome to America Muffs. You will like it here, especially if you chose to live in California. Take your time though. We need to prepare.

This guide is incomplete. There is no mention of what to do when encountering dog walkers or when one wishes to walk their own dog.

I'll be honest, I don't see much insanity to it...

It's the same here but I ride on the footpath anyway. I've ridden past so many cops I've lost count. It's just one of those laws that isn't enforced.
There are sections though that are pedestrian and cyclist shared such as the bridge I cross every day and things like some scenic tracks.

This is a valid point. Dogs are banned from the CBD though so I never see dog walkers on the bridge (as it leads to the CBD) so I am not well versed in this area.

Also, in my experience dog walkers are always very polite. I've never had a problem with them.

Come and live in Switzerland for a few months. You'll hate fucking cyclists.
