Follow the rules on the road

  • Follow the Rules

    Yield to pedestrians. Stop at all red lights and stop signs. Ride in the direction of traffic. Use the grip bell to signal your presence. Do not wear more than one earphone while riding.

  • Boardwalk Rules

    Bicycle riding is to be done in the center lane of the boardwalk only, and at safe, reasonable speed. Please note, you are not permitted to ride your bicycle on the ramps to & from the boardwalk. It must be walked.

  • Do a Pre-Ride Check

    Check the bike’s tire pressure, try the grip bell, and if you’re riding at night check that the front and rear lights are illuminated.

  • Be Predictable

    Make it easy for the other traffic around you. Don’t make unexpected turns that put yourself and others in danger. Ride at a steady pace so other vehicles can anticipate your movement.

  • Wear a Helmet

    Wear a helmet whenever you ride. Always buckle the strap. Replace your helmet after any crash and whenever you see signs of damage.

    Avoid these common helmet mistakes

  • Tips for Turns

    Use hand signals to let drivers and other cyclists know your intention to turn or to stop. Don’t turn or change lanes without knowing the position of the cars and bikes around you.
