Rules of the road

Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. Under state law, bicycles are considered vehicles. Cyclists should obey all traffic laws, signs and signals.

  • Always ride with the flow of traffic. It's the law -- and safer for you.
  • Ride as far right as is safe and reasonable. You may move toward the center of the lane when passing another vehicle, preparing for a left turn, avoiding hazards or obstacles, or riding at the same speed as traffic. Before moving out into the roadway for any reason, always look behind you, signal and yield to traffic.
  • Use hand signals to indicate turns, lane changes and stops. Signal before, not while you make your move. Pass on the left side of slower bicycles as other vehicles do.
  • Follow lane markings. When approaching an intersection, make sure you're in the appropriate lane for your direction of travel and be aware of motorists making a right-handed turn into your path.  
  • Use a headlight, taillight and reflectors. It's recommended that bicylists always wear helmets.
  • Remember, pedestrians have the right of way when they are crossing the street.

This event is being sponsored by Colorado State University Parking Services.
