How To Ride In Bike Lanes

1. Safety considerations 

  • Bikes are not required to travel in bike lanes when preparing for turns  
  • Never ride within three feet of parked cars; beware of the door zone  
  • Avoid bike lanes that you think are poorly designed or unsafe; alert your local government 

    2. Intersections  
  • Avoid riding in lanes that position you on the right side of a right-turn lane  
  • Bike lanes should stop before an intersection to allow for bikes to make left turns  
  • Always signal as you move out of a bike lane into another traffic lane 

    3. Debris  
  • Report obstructions and poor maintenance to your local government  
  • Avoid riding immediately adjacent to curbs where trash collects  
  • If debris forces you out of the bike lane, signal your move out into traffic 

    4. Parked cars  
  • Never ride within three feet of parked cars  
  • Watch for brake lights, front wheels, signals and driver movements  
  • Position yourself in the field of vision of a motorist pulling out of a parking space 

    5. Right turns  
  • Avoid riding in lanes that position you on the right side of a right-turning motorist  
  • Move out of the right-turn lane if you're not turning right  
  • Ride in the rightmost lane that goes in the direction that you are traveling

    6. Left turns  
  • Move out of the bike lane well in advance of the intersection; signal every move  
  • Position yourself in the rightmost left-turning lane  
  • Reposition yourself after executing the turn; remain clear of parked cars
