GUIDE FOR CYCLISTS

Rules of the Road

Bike riding can be a lot of fun - feeling the breeze in your face (at many miles an hour - we won't say how many since we are talking rules here…..), exploring new paths or finding somewhere peaceful to have a snack and take in the beauty of the world.

But there are rules we need to follow when on our bikes, remember - On a bike, you are a vehicle, subject to the laws for vehicles. Let's get down to business with the boring legal laws.
