Learn Bicycle Laws And Try The Bicycle Safety Course At Free Event

Flickr User: billaday

The Duluth Police Department invites you to a free event that is open to the public as part of Bike Month.  Bicyclists and motorists need to share the road and the responsibility.  It will be held at the Public Safety Building, 2030 North Arlington Avenue, Duluth.  It will take place on Sunday, July 1, from 10a-2p and will include a bike safety course, training to educate drivers and bicyclists and inform you of the current bicycle laws in place.

Here are 8 “rules of the road” according to the Duluth Police Department:

Bicyclists may ride on all Minnesota roads, except where restricted — such as interstates.

Bicyclists should ride on the road, and must ride in the same direction as traffic.

Motorists must at all times maintain a three-foot clearance when passing a bicyclist.

Bicyclists must obey all traffic control signs and signals, just as motorists.

Motorists and bicyclists must yield the right of way to each other.

Bicyclists must signal their turns and should ride in a predictable manner.

Bicyclists must use a headlight and rear reflectors when it’s dark.

Bicyclists should always wear helmets and bright reflective gear
