Tips for cyclists

Here are some tips for cyclists to follow in order to ride safely:

  • ride in a straight line and don't weave

  • ring a bell to announce that you are passing someone
  • show courtesy and respect to other trail users
  • yield to slower users
  • obey the rules of the trail
  • yield to traffic at the place where the trail crosses the road
  • ride on the right side of the trail
