Safe cycling tip

Bicyclists are allowed to ride on sidewalks in Bloomington. When you are riding on the sidewalk, try to bike in the same direction as the parallel traffic. Going with the flow of traffic can be safer because you are more likely to be seen by motorists. Motorists are more likely to anticipate vehicles coming from the left and can be more diligent looking to the left rather than the right. Motorists should remember to look both ways while crossing sidewalks and trails when using driveways.
