Motorists: 

  • Slow down or stop at intersections and trail crossings. 
  • Always be aware of nearby bicyclists and pedestrians.
  • Watch the speed limit signs and adjust accordingly near parks and schools.

Bicyclists and Pedestrians: 

  • If riding on streets, always ride with traffic and follow the rules of the road. 
  • Watch for items on the road or trail that might make you swerve or fall. 
  • Watch for turning traffic at every intersection. 
  • If walking or riding at night, always wear reflective gear. 
  • Wear a helmet at all times when cycling.
  • Be sure to yell "on your left" when passing someone on the trail.
