The mother of a toddler knocked out of his stroller Thursday afternoon by a cyclist riding on the sidewalk is urging bike riders to stay on the road.

Lindsay Nelson said she was waiting for a bus near Greenbank and Baseline roads with her three children when a southbound cyclist clipped the stroller where her 13-month-old son Magnus Mayes was taking a nap.The impact was so strong that Magnus fell out of the stroller, striking his head on the pavement, Nelson said.

"She was going extremely fast," she said. "Much too fast to be next to women and children on the sidewalk like that."
