Bicycles are vehicles and cyclists must obey traffic laws. Below are some helpful tips to keep you safe while riding your bike in Ocean City:

  • Stop at all red lights and stop signs.
  • Ride in the direction of traffic on the road:
    • When going north, ride on the northbound side
    • When going south, ride on the southbound side
  • Do not ride on a sidewalk – it is illegal and dangerous
  • Ride sober – don’t ride a bicycle while impaired by alcohol or drugs.
  • Avoid distractions and pay attention – don’t carry anything that prevents you from keeping both hands on the handlebars. Don’t use mobile devices or wear earbuds.
  • Your bike must have lights after dark: white in front; red in back.
  • Don’t allow anyone to ride on the handlebars … one person per seat.
