Are there any special traffic laws that apply to cyclists?

  • Cyclists should always ride single file, never two abreast.
  • Only one rider per bike. Exceptions are when there is a baby seat attached.
  • Give proper hand-signals when turning or stopping.
  • Do not ride on sidewalks (unless allowed by local law).
  • Do not ride at night unless the bike is equipped with proper reflectors and lights.
