The sidewalk was across from the binary before Euclid reconstruction. It was closed on purpose during the redesign. Not sure what the reasoning was.

What is Cleveland's laws on bicycle on sidewalks? In come cities, bikers must walk their bike through crosswalks because it prevents a bikers from approaching an intersection to quickly and not be seen by turning cars.

I have not seen it by Case students, but I wish other bikers in Cleveland would be more consistent in their actions. I am sick of the bikers that go back and forth from sidewalk to road, and do not obey the laws of either. It makes it very hard as a driver to know what to expect and makes it very dangerous for the biker. When bikers are no the road, they should be traveling with traffic flows and be obeying all laws.
