An officer whom we will call Bike Cop No. 1 was standing on the sidewalk with his bicycle -- right in front of Fat Cats.

Several other officers had already hit the road -- and were apparently riding in the street lanes, against the flow of traffic.

"This is what we need -- a bunch of bike cops riding down the wrong side of the road," he said.

The rest of the group, which had gone down the block, toward Avenue of the Arts, then circled back, riding on the sidewalk.

Then they met up with the seeming leader of the group, Bike Cop No. 1.

When they were on the sidewalk, they were riding with traffic.

It is unclear whether the riders were reprimanded for the seeming traffic infraction.
