Bike Trail Etiquette

Plan ahead.
Your trip route should be planned in advance so that you would know what to expect and where to go as well as help you to prepare accordingly.

Respect the signs.
When you are already on the trail, as responsible biker, you should observe the posted signs on the trails and roads you are on. They have been posted there not only for show but for all people to follow. Respect trail and road closures (ask if you are not sure), avoid possible trespassing on private land and try to obtain all permits and authorizations as may be required. In most cases Federal and State wilderness areas are closed to cycling.

Yield the trail.
Make known your approach well in advance. Bell or friendly greeting is considerate and works well. Anticipate that other trail users may be in blind spots or around corners , so slow down in the areas with low visibility.

Control your bicycle.
Inattention for even a second can cause disaster. Wear a helmet and keep your bicycle in good condition. Excessive speed can maim and threaten people. Show your respect to others by slowing down when passing others. Keep in mind that startling someone may cause loss of trail access.

Leave no trace.
Even on open trails, you should not ride under conditions where you will leave evidence of your passing. This means staying on the trail  and not creating any new ones. Make sure to pack out what you packed in.

Give animals extra room.

All animals are startled by an unannounced approach, loud noise or sudden movement. This can be dangerous to you, for other users and for animals. Never spook animals, give them extra room and time to adjust to your presence.

Carry necessary supplies.

Always carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions. And the most important tip that the GetAllTravel.info shares is to keep a first aid kit, and all emergency phone numbers always ready with you.
