Sharing the Road

May 1, 2013

My wife and I have started biking together. I’ve also started biking to work a few times a week to save gas. I used to bike a lot and I’ve even done a couple of century rides so it has been tons a fun getting back into it. I’ve noticed a few things being done that are not right, decent, or even legal, so I thought I’d share some basics of sharing the road.

1. The road doesn’t belong to you or any individual
Don’t get the entitlement syndrome and believe the road is yours and yours alone, it belongs to everyone.

2. If you are using wheels, you go on the right side of the road
This drives me crazy! Bikes, cars, unicycles, skates, tricycles, and anything else with wheels is supposed to be driven/ridden on the right side of the road. That’s the law! Do it!

3. Highways and interstates are for motor vehicles in most states
Check your local laws before going on a highway or interstate in anything but a motor vehicle.

If we all remember these things and to simply be kind and courteous, sharing the road with everyone will be a piece of cake.

Here’s a picture of our bikes! (Sorry it’s in a dark garage, it’s super rainy here this morning)


Do you have any rules or courtesies that would make sharing the road easier? Let me know them!
