Vehicular vs. Pedestrian Cycling

Wikipedia has an interesting article on vehicular cycling:

Vehicular cycling (VC) is the practice of driving bicycles on public roads in a manner which is visible, predictable, and in accordance with the rules of the road for operating a vehicle.

The article makes the distinction between this and pedestrian cycling:

An alternative to vehicular cycling is pedestrian cycling, or cycling according to the pedestrian rules of the road. This means riding on sidewalks, crosswalks and paths at pedestrian speeds.

So given Islanders’ driving habits in the car, which category would Island cyclists fall under?

Well it’s about the same…

Not signalling to turn.
Driving on sidewalks (and crashing into libraries).
Not wearing seatbelts/helmets.
Going through stop signs and red lights.

This list goes on…
