When Riding Your Bike
Share multi-use paths with consideration for pedestrians and other cyclists.
Yield to pedestrians.
Ring your bell or call out to let others know you’re passing from behind, around that turn, or up/down that hill. Downhill riders should yield to uphill riders, unless the trail is clearly signed as one-way or downhill-only. Pass other riders safely and courteously.
Ride on open trails only. Do not trespass on private property.
Stay on marked trails and don’t cut new ones. When conditions are wet, soft or muddy, choose other trails or routes to avoid damaging the trail base.
Wear a helmet and use lights at night.
Control your bicycle. Pay attention and control your speed.
Never scare animals. Deer and horses, when spooked, may bolt and cause a collision with you or others around you. And, don’t surprise a skunk… ever.
