Preparing to Ride
Bicycling is a fun and healthy exercise. Before riding your
bicycle on roadways, take time to learn the rules. Many
bicyclists are seriously injured in accidents because they are
less protected than drivers of automobiles and/or they do not
practice safe riding skills.
By observing Illinois bicycle laws and following safety
rules, your bicycling will be enjoyable and more importantly,
Some local governments have additional laws and regulations
for bicycles. Please make sure you check with your local
government office to see if there are additional laws and
regulations you have to follow.
