​​​​​​​​​General biking rules apply to all cyclists and facilitate a safe, fun riding atmosphere for individuals and families.


Ride Single File

Ride two abreast only when you are not impeading traffic (front or rear) or when all cyclists are on the shoulder. On curving canyon roads, play it safe and ride single file.

Never Ride Against Traffic​

Ride in the right lane, except when passing another vehicle, preparing for a left turn or avoiding hazards. Always ride with the flow of traffic. Ride on the paved shoulder ​whenever a paved shoulder is suitable for bicycle riding is present.

Always Wear a Helmet​

You can never anticipate when you will fall off of your bike. Stay safe while riding and encourage yourself and others to wear a helmet.

Obey Traffic Laws​

Use hand signals to indicate left or right turns, slowing down, or stopping. Never assume motorists see you or that you have the right-of-way. Expect the unexpected, your first responsibility is to avoid a crash.​
