Always wear a helmet and avoid wearing headphones or earbuds.

Ride on the right side of the trail. Announce your intent to pass by ringing your bell. Pass on the left even when passing other cyclists.

Use hand signals when appropriate. Ride in a predictable manner and don't speed.

Be prepared to stop when needed when there are pets, kids, and other people out and about.
