Bicyclists have all the rights and duties applicable to the driver of any other vehicle and can be penalized for violating traffic laws.

  • Obey traffic laws, signs and signals
  • Ride in the right lane, except when passing another vehicle, preparing for a left turn or avoiding hazards
  • Ride on paved shoulders and bike lanes when present and free of hazards
  • Ride on the right, never ride against traffic
  • Ride no more than two abreast, returning to single-file if riding two abreast would impede the flow of traffic
  • On curving canyon roads without bike lanes or shoulders, play it safe and ride single file
  • Use hand signals to indicate right or left turns, slowing or stopping
  • Use a headlight, taillight and reflectors at night
  • Act like a vehicle on the roads — bicycles have the same rights and responsibilities
  • Never assume motorists see you or that you have the right-of-way
  • Wear appropriate gear to protect yourself: helmet, glasses and gloves
  • Expect the unexpected; your first responsibility is to be safe
