RIDING TIPS AND TRAINING

Bicycle Ruidoso

BICYCLE RUIDOSO 'RULES OF THE ROAD' SAFETY TIPS

RULES OF THE ROAD

The same laws that apply to motorists apply to cyclists

Always ride in the same direction as traffic

Use the lane furthest to the right that heads in the direction that you are traveling

Slower moving cyclists stay to the right

Obey all traffic control devices, such as stop signs, lights, and lane markings

Always use hand signals to indicate your intention to stop or turn to motorists and cyclists

RIDE PREDICTABLY

Ride in a straight line and don't swerve in the road or between parked cars

Check for oncoming traffic before entering any street or intersection

Anticipate hazards and adjust position in traffic accordingly

Hook your thumbs, always wrap your thumbs around the handlebar, instead of laying them across the top. This will save your from going down when you hit a bump.

No aero riding on busy streets. Save it for when you're on a smooth road with few cars.

BE VISIBLE

Wear brightly colored clothing at all times

At night, use a white front light, red rear light or reflector and reflective tape or clothing

Make eye contact with motorists to let them know you are there
