No one learns to drive a vehicle safely without education, practice, & experience. Safely riding your in requires the same preparation. To assist you, has partnered with IPTM & Florida Department of Transportation to provide you the following to prevent bicycle fatalities.

🚴‍♂️ Bike lanes provide a dedicated space for bicycle riders; treat it just like you would any other travel lane & follow the same traffic laws if you were driving a car.
🚴‍♀️ Bicyclists may ride out of the bike lane in the travel lane for their own safety on narrow roads to avoid obstacles or pavement hazards, or to prepare for a left turn.
🚴‍♂️ When there’s no bike lane, or when you leave the bike lane, ride with the direction of traffic & as close as safely possible to the right edge of the road.
🚴‍♀️ Be aware of passing vehicles & pay special attention at driveways & intersections where they will be pulling in & out or turning.
🚴‍♂️ Ride in a straight line; don’t weave through the road or in-between cars.
