During my ride to work, I like to use the bike lane provided on the street. However, I see a lot of people riding on the sidewalk. I know there are certain sections where it is safer to get off the street and onto the sidewalk for a second or two. What is your preference street , sidewalk, or street when a bike lane is provided?

It all depends upon where the driveway kickers are placed. Maximum airtime between destinations is a big factor to consider.

A more serious answer would be, stick to the street unless the side walk becomes the only or temptingly empty option.
