Trail Riding Etiquette and Safety

Here we focus on trails and multi-use paths. See details from the Florida Department of Transportation for full rules of the road. Bicycles are classified as vehicles and subject to all rules of the road.

  • Florida law requires all bicyclists under age 16 to wear a bicycle helmet.
  • Be courteous of all trail users (bicyclists, joggers, walkers, wheelchairs, skateboarders, rollerbladers).
  • Keep right and no more than two abreast.
  • Pass on the left. Be sure the lane is clear before passing and leave enough distance between yourself and the other user.
  • Give audible signals when passing (voice, bell or whistle).
  • Travel in a predictable and consistent manner, keeping control of your bike at all times and travel at a reasonable speed.
  • Do not block the trail, move your bike off to the side when stopped.
  • Yield when entering or crossing trails, and yield to pedestrians at crosswalks.
  • Do not use trails while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Clean up your litter.
  • Keep pets on leashes and clean up after your pet.
  • Carry identification.
  • Motorized vehicles are prohibited, with the exception of  electric wheelchairs, golf carts operated by trails staff, and public maintenance and safety vehicles.
  • Equestrian trail use where applicable:
    • Use designated parking and hitch areas.
    • Remain on the designated equestrian path.
    • Use verbal warnings and caution when passing other trail users.
    • Dismount at multi-user bridges and walk across.

About Central Florida Weather

  • Respect the weather. Be aware of heat and humidity.
  • This is Florida, so be sure to bring food and water, suntan lotion, a wide brimmed hat, and insect repellant.
  • Central Florida has four seasons but comfortable for biking year-round:
    • Summers are hot and humid, and generally have afternoon thunderstorms.
    • Winters are generally the dry season. There can be a few cold days with sub-freezing temperature, but biking is comfortable most days.
    • Spring and autumn with moderate temperatures and rainfall are the most pleasant seasons for biking and outdoor recreational activities.

Be considerate of the environment - pick up and dispose of all garbage.
