Tips for Safe CyclingIntersections — Always be alert at intersections for traffic conflicts. Left turns by cyclists and right turns by motorists are the biggest problems confronting the cyclist. Parked Cars — Watch for cars pulling into traffic from a parked position, driveway, or street. Be careful of opening doors and pedestrians getting out of their cars. Laws — Obey all traffic control devices, such as stop signs, traffic signals, one-way streets, etc., as if you were operating a motor vehicle. Riding — Ride to the right side of the road if possible. Don’t show off by stunting or weaving in traffic. Right-of-Way — Rules for right-of-way that apply to motorists also apply to bicyclists. Always give pedestrians the right-of-way. Visibility — Wear bright clothing when riding at dusk or dark and use a white light in front and a red reflector in the rear of your bike. Added reflective material on your clothing and bicycle is recommended when riding after sundown. Helmet Use — Most fatalities and serious injuries to cyclists are the result of head injuries. Always wear a Snell or ANSI approved helmet. Hunting Precaution — Be aware that trails do pass through areas open to hunting during designated hunting seasons. There will be signs along the trail that mark hunting areas.
