Bicycling has grown in popularity across North Carolina, both as a recreational sport and a regular mode of transportation. Many areas offer bike lanes and bike-friendly facilities to accommodate those traveling by two pedals. However, bicyclists are particularly vulnerable road users. We’re all responsible to watch for each other.
When driving a car, give 3 feet between you and a bicyclist.
Treat your bike as a vehicle, and follow the rules of the road.
Ride in the street and not on sidewalks. You are more visible to drivers pulling out of intersections and driveways.
When riding next to parked cars, watch for opening doors.
