The guy has some courage to do what he did. The highway is four lanes and the junction splits in half into two lanes each. He would have had to cross the two or four lanes to get to the side I found him in.

He must have come out of Chester. I've seen people actually try to run across 95 just south of this guy's location. Lot of dummies around there...

In most states the law says that a bicyclist has the same rights and responsibilities as a motorist, or rider, does on the road. Now not all roads are open the a bike, interstates are limited access and a bike shouldn't be there, and there are others that the state and can stay off of as well. I use to ride about 150-200 miles a week.

I use to hate being on any main road and the difference in speed is just too great. I could keep up a steady 23-27 mph and on most road we rode the limit was 45. BUT the few main roads the limit was 55-65.

That said the guy on the bike I-95 is volunteering to be road kill IMHO.

There are a few interstates where bicycles are allowed. One is I-10 across West Texas. I rode a bike across Texas and sharing a back road with a log truck can be interesting. I saw a guy on a Walmart bike on the Dalton Highway on his way back from Deadhorse with a military duffel bag on the back of his bike.

Wow, I am surprised.

(d) Operation on shoulder.- - If the department authorizes pedalcycle access to a freeway, the
pedalcycle shall be operated upon the shoulder of that freeway whenever practicable.
Comment: Bicycles may be permitted on freeways in Pennsylvania with permission of the
Department. The applicant must submit a written request (form) to the Department for review. In
addition, Section 3511(d) requires the bicycle to be ridden on the shoulder of the freeway.

But everyone text and drives at 75MPH...
