Rules of the Road

Bicycling on Colorado's Roads

 - Courtesy of Bicycle Colorado

Bike Lane 

Bicyclists have all the rights and duties applicable to the driver of any other vehicle and can be penalized for violating traffic laws. Ride on the right, never ride against traffic

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

Obey traffic laws, signs, and signals

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 left or right 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 safety equipment to protect yourself: helmet, glasses, and gloves

Expect the unexpected; your first responsibility is to be safe
