Bicycle riders on wrong side of street

Saturday morning, I have just witnessed a family (2 adults and children ) riding along Colorado on the wrong side of the street. This made it difficult for me and other traffic turning in and out of Safeway parking lot. Don't these parents realise how dangerous it is for them to teach their kids that riding on the wrong side of the street, where cars do not expect to see them, is asking for trouble?
Can these people be ticketed? Are they actually breaking the law? How can we educate parents who may have never been educated themselves on the right way to ride bikes? [Portion removed by Palo Alto Online staff.]
