Iím asking as my google search failed. What types of vehicles are and are not allowed on sidewalks in Colorado?
Bikes?, electric bikes?, scooters?, golf carts?, motorized skateboards? Powered ride on toy cars?

I am not sure anyone has bothered to spell it in out in that much detail?

My two cents -
non-electric single-user recreational things like bikes, scooters, skateboards - yes unless otherwise marked
electric for ADA purpose - like wheelchair/electric scooter - yes
golf cart - questionable - probably not - but depends on neighborhood - in a golf club community it makes sense - in many neighborhoods, though, sidewalks are not wide enough to accommodate.
motorized recreational toys for children - yes unless it is a hazard to pedestrians
anything that should be licensed and tagged like an ATV or moped or motorcycle - no

The Woodmen Edition paper just had an article about cars parked on sidewalks that have sloped curbs- pretty much just self-entitled jerks do that.

Here is an old thread: Laws on obstruction of sidewalk?

I find it bothersome when Iím walking and I have to get off the sidewalk so a motorized vehicle can drive by.

technically they are supposed to move out of the way for pedestrians. i dont ride on sidewalk so have not seen it. But there is a rule...more vulnerable should have right of way and shouldnt have to move out of the way....for instance on the ATV trails in Colorado

(this goes for stop or move out of way for)
Jeeps / trucks stop for ATVs
ATVs stop for dirtbikes
dirtbikes stop for bicyclists
bicyclists stop for hikers

everyone stops for cops

sadly this usually isnt the case but its pretty common on the trails.
