    Default Go along the road along the pavement

    Hi,

    I'd like to know what you think about this sentence about giving directions

    Go along the road along the pavement

    Immagine I am on my moped; I stop and ask about the way.
    Is it possible to say that sentence. By that sentence I mean that
    I should drive (on the paved street) having the pavement as a reference....Is my sentence clear?
    Can I use the same sentence if I were on foot ( in that case I would be walking ON the pavement, not in the middle of the street as in the former case..)

    Thanks rip

    On your moped:

    Go along the road, following the pavement....
    Go along the road, keeping the pavement on your left/right side....

    On foot

    Go along the pavement on this road ....
