Rules of the Road

Women Meeting for Group Ride

Driving your bike in traffic

When riding your bike on public roads, you are driving a vehicle – and you have the same rights and responsibilities as drivers of motor vehicles.  Drive your bike as you would drive your car in traffic, and follow all traffic laws.

Here are some links that provide resource info on safe and legal bicycling:


SAME ROADS, SAME RULES

Ride your bike safely and legally on public roadways (MassBike).

Guidelines for group rides

Follow these basic guidelines when leading or participating in group rides:

  • Arrive early, introduce new riders, and start on time.
  • Review the route before starting the ride.
  • Always wear a helmet when riding.
  • Pass other riders only on the left, and announce your pass to other riders.
  • Stay hydrated:  bring water and/or sports drink.
  • Bring some money for snacks and emergencies.
  • Carry a spare tube, tire levers, pump, and multi-tool.
  • Ride friendly, and be aware of traffic conditions.
  • Obey traffic laws. Cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists when using public roadways. For Massachusetts law on bicycling, see www.state.ma.us/legis/laws/mgl/85-11b.htm.
  • Ride single file unless not obstructing traffic (never more than double file).
  • Never leave anyone alone on the route. Include new members even if you have to slow your pace to help.
  • Make sure everyone completes the ride safely.
  • Promote a culture of safe cycling.  Get some local tips from CRW.
  • Have fun!
