Learn best practices for riding on city streets and off-road trails

  • Pedestrians stay to the Left, but Bicyclists ride on the Right!
  • When riding on the trail and you come up behind a pedestrian, give them an early warning that you are coming through.
    • Call out, “ON YOUR LEFT (or right) !”
  • Use Hand Signals to indicate your Turns to everyone around you : Point the Way!
  • Riding at Night? Use your Lights!
  • Riding at Dusk?  USE YOUR LIGHTS!
  • Always Wear a Helmet when you ride.  Another name for your helmet is your BRAIN BUCKET. Use yours to protect your brain.
  • If you get into a tangle with a motorized vehicle, the other guy is always gonna win. Wear the helmet WHENEVER you ride.

Keep the rubber on the road!
