There are a few cycling laws all riders must follow to help ensure a safe ride:
- Ride in the same direction as traffic.
- Follow all traffic signs and signals.
- Yield to pedestrians.
- Walk bikes on sidewalks.
- Use hand signals when turning, and do not to weave in and out of traffic.
- Never ride distracted. Wearing headphones is strongly discouraged, and it’s never a good idea to use your phone while riding.
All users must be 18 years or older to ride a Nice Ride bike.
Keep in mind it's generally safest to take a route that includes a bike lane. When you map out a ride using the mobile app, we'll show you a route using bike lanes whenever possible. You can also use Google Maps to find bike routes using bike lanes. And there are many other resources for cyclists available online, such as this refresher of your rights and responsibilities as a biker in Minnesota.
While not required, its highly encouraged that all riders wear a helmet.
