Alternative method: pull up parallel next to the curb, put down your curbside foot, lift your front wheel onto the sidewalk. Scoot forward and the rear wheel will follow. Continue on your way. Drawback: does require you to stop briefly. Advantages: won’t scare pedestrians, won’t dump you on your face.
