THE LAW:

bulletBicyclists must ride with, not against, other vehicular traffic. Only when walking a bicycle is a cyclist permitted to travel facing traffic.

bulletBicyclists are required to obey all traffic signs, signals and pavement markings.

bulletBicyclists must use appropriate hand signals before turning or stopping.

bulletBicyclists must keep to the right edge of the roadway, allowing faster traffic to safely pass. Cyclists can travel in the middle of the lane if they are proceeding at the same speed as the rest of the traffic, or the lane is too narrow to share safely with a motor vehicle.

bulletBicyclists should not pass other traffic on a hill or at an intersection.

bulletBicyclists must stop at a curb to allow emergency vehicles to pass.

bulletBicyclists must observe speed restrictions in school zones and speed limits in general.

bulletState law also permits local governments to regulate bicycle operation, such as requiring bicycle licensing and registration. Bicyclists must familiarize themselves with local ordinances to be properly educated about all of the
laws affecting them.

bulletBicyclists must never ride on the freeway, or attach themselves to other vehicles using the roadway.

bulletBicyclists should ride only on the permanent attached seat of the bicycle.

bulletPassengers should not be carried unless the bike is equipped for it, and at least one hand should be kept on the handlebars at all times.

bulletBicyclists should not ride more than two abreast in a single lane, except on paths set aside for the exclusive use of bicycles.

bulletEvery bicycle ridden after dark must be equipped with a white headlight, a red taillight, and a red, rear reflector.

bulletNo bicycle shall be operated unless equipped with a bell or horn audible at least 100 feet away.

bulletEvery bicycle must have an adequate brake.

A MOTORIST MUST:

bulletShare the road with bicycles. The bicyclist has the same right to use the public road as any other driver, except freeways.

bulletMaintain a safety zone of approximately three feet between the car and the bicyclist.

bulletPass a cyclist only when it can be done safely.

bulletLeave ample room when turning right after passing a bicyclist so the bicyclist is not cut-off when the motorist slows for the turn.
