Rules of the Road
While many San Diegans realize going by bike is a cost-effective, healthy and fun way to get around, it might seem intimidating to try without knowing rules of the road.
Here are a few fast facts to help you get ready to hit the road:
- First come, first served: yield to those who get there before you or whose traffic signals dictate they have right of way
- Be predictable – ride in a straight line
- Always ride in the same direction as other traffic, usually on the right-hand side of the road. It’s OK to be on the left side of a one-way road
- Stop lights and stop signs apply to bicyclists, too!
- When turning left, move cautiously into the far-left or left-turn lane. Don't turn left from the right-hand side of the road.
- You’ll see sharrow signs when a lane is too narrow for bicyclists to pass safely on the right. When you see this, discourage unsafe passing by riding toward the middle of the lane.
- Be cautious of train/trolley tracks and when clear cross at a 90 degree angle (never parallel)
- Wearing a helmet is always smart
- If you’re riding a personal bicycle, invest in a good lock: U-locks are safe and sturdy. If you plan to bike in dark conditions, use a front white light and rear red light – it’s the law.
