Safety and Etiquette 101

  • Pedestrians and cars always have the right of way.
  • Follow lane markings.
  • Slow down around pedestrians.
  • Wear brightly covered clothing at all times.
  • Use a bell or shift gears to warn pedestrians when passing them.
  • Be aware of the traffic around you and be prepared to take evasive action.
  • Learn braking and turning techniques to avoid crashes.
  • With helmets, make sure that the helmet fits on top of your head, not tipped back or forward.
  • Always look back and use hand and arm signals to indicate your intention to stop, merge or turn.
  • Use the rightmost lane that heads in the direction that you are traveling, unless following a bike path.
  • At night, use a white front light and red rear light or reflector. Wear reflective tape or clothing.
  • Be predictable and make eye contact with motorists/pedestrians to let them know you are there.
  • Ride with traffic and obey the same laws as motorists.
  • Avoid broken pavement, loose gravel and leaves - which can cause you to lose control
  • If it's raining, leave more distance to stop due to wet brakes.
