Here's what I do in these situations - I get off my bike and walk. It's safer for me and the pedestrians, and since it's usually just for a block or two, it only takes a couple of extra minutes.

We are asking through traffic to suck up the extra few minutes that two-way streets and lane reductions will add to their travel times. Surely cyclists can take an extra few minutes for the safety of pedestrians as well as their own, and keep our sidewalks for the slower foot traffic, neighbourly chats, and sidewalk commerce that are the lifeblood of a healthy city.
