Road Biking and E-Cycling Safety Tips:

  • Walk your bikes and e-bikes in the brick pedestrian malls. 
  • Ride with traffic (i.e.stay to the right side of the road) unless you are turning left or passing someone. 
  • Ride as close to the white line/shoulder as safely possible.
  • Always bring a light when you're riding at night. A white light up front and reflector behind is best. 
  • Let everyone know you are turning or stopping by signaling with your left or right arm which way you are turning. When you're stopping, signal with your left arm downward. 
  • Drivers, please give bicyclists plenty of space when passing. Up to three feet is the law. 
  • When riding on a multi-use path ride on the right side and give audible warnings when passing. 
  • You can ride side-by-side as long as you're not impending traffic, move to single file when appropriate so traffic can pass. 
  • Always wear a helmet. 
  • Stop at stop-signs and obey traffic lights. 
  • E-bikes are prohibited on single-track trails
  • Class 1 e-bikes are allowed on the Rio Grande Trail, where there is a 20-mile-per-hour speed limit.
