Share the road

Bicycling is the fastest and most convenient way to get around the City of Fort Collins and the CSU campus.  Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists.  Under state law, bicycles are considered vehicles and should obey all traffic laws, signs, and signals.  

Here are tips on how to be a respectful bicyclist:

  • Respect is a two-way street.  Bicyclists are required to stop at traffic lights and stop signs.
  • Ride predictably -- use hand signals and make eye contact with motorists.
  • Ride your bicycle at night with front and rear lights.
  • Ride on the right hand side of the road with the flow of traffic and don't ride the wrong way.
  • Wear a helmet.
  • Remember, pedestrians have the right of way when they are crossing the street.
