It's not posted, but it is codified as such in state law.  Oregon
expressly limits bicycles to walking speed on sidewalks, all states
consider bicycles as vehicles that must obey vehicle law as applicable
(including not driving on sidewalks, which makes the whole "walking
speed" thing moot in Oregon anyway).

BC similarly prohibits vehicles on sidewalks including bicycles.

In all cases, of course, driveways are fair game, as are places where
there is signage indicating the opposite.
