Biking Tips

When you’re biking, be a PAL and follow these tips:

  • Obey all traffic signals, signs and lane markings.
  • Ride on the right side of the road with the flow of traffic. Pass slower moving or stopped vehicles on their left.
  • Ride far enough away from the curb to stay clear of opening car doors, potholes, debris and sewer grates and to maintain a straight line.
  • Be alert, scan the route ahead for traffic, opening car doors, pedestrians and obstacles on the road surface.
  • Ride predictably so that others can see you and predict your movements. Use hand signals to indicate turns.
  • Make eye contact with motorists and pedestrians before crossing paths.
  • Except when signaling, always keep both hands on the handlebars and be ready to brake. Use secure racks or packs for carrying items or packages.
  • Go slower and use caution when the road is wet or icy, or when visibility limited.
  • Be visible; use lights, and reflectors are required when riding at night. Brightly colored or reflective clothing can help increase visibility.
  • Avoid bicycling upon sidewalks, especially in areas where motorists may not expect bicyclists or may have obstructed visibility.
  • Keep your bicycle in good working condition. Also, only ride a bicycle that is sized and adjusted to fit you.
