Off-street Biking

Keep to the right.
Yield to pedestrians and slower moving traffic except when passing. Slow down when there are lots of users on the trail.
Use your path.
Don't ride on designated walking or running paths.

Be careful at crossings. Look both ways.
Cyclists: yield to through traffic at intersections. Remember, pedestrians have the right of way.
Pedestrians: exercise caution. Be aware that cyclists and skaters require lots of room to stop.

Advise others when passing.
Sound your bell or horn or call out when approaching pedestrians or slower cyclists, then pass safely on the left.
