Pass on Left
- Scan ahead and behind announcing your intention to pass another user
- Pull out only when you are sure the lane is clear
- Allow plenty of room, about two bike lengths, before moving back to the right
Announce when Passing
- Use a bell, horn, or voice to indicate your intention to pass
- Warn others well in advance so you do not startle them
- Clearly announce "On your left" when passing
Yield when Entering and Crossing
- Yield to traffic at places where the trail crosses the road
- Yield to other users at trail intersections
- Slow down before intersections and when entering the trail from the road
- Travel in a straight line unless you are avoiding hazards or passing
- Indicate your intention to turn or pass
- Warn other users of your intentions
Do Not Block the Trail
- For group rides, use no more than half the trail; don't hog the trail
- Stop and regroup completely off of the trail
Clean up Litter
- Pack out more than you pack in
- Encourage others to respect the path
- Place all litter in its proper receptacle
