As this cyclist also happens to be commuting to the same office park where I work, would I be "within bounds" to make a comment, or should I keep to myself?
Where do you live? Is your area heavily populated? Is that sidewalk heavily trafficked? Is he riding fast? Is he riding dangerously?

Sometimes minding your own business is preferable to being pedantic.
