It is always good to know the rules of the road while driving a car, but it also good to know and understand the rules while riding your bicycle. So here are a few general rules that every bike rider should know to keep themselves safe. These rules are from Bicycle Colorado and they are the rules to use in all of Colorado.
- Ride on the right, never ride against traffic
- Never assume motorists see you or that you have the right-of-way
- Use hand signals to indicate left or right turns, slowing or stopping
- Obey traffic laws, signs, and signals
- Remember to always be safe
