The vast majority
Bl bicycling, whether for recreation or personal transportation,
h i t m a n of
takes place on our roadways. Riding a bicycle requires you to be responsible for your
actions, for your safety and for the safety of others. The following tips will help you
to fulfill your responsibilities and help show that bikes can share the road with other
traffic. For a complete presentation of how to ride on roadways with other traffic,
visit NJDOT’s Bicycling webpage to download the New Jersey Bicycling Manual.
Every person riding a bicycle on a roadway is granted all
the rights and subject to all of the duties of the motor
vehicle driver.
39:4-14.2, 39:4-10.11 Operating Regulations
Every person riding a bicycle on a roadway shall ride as
near to the right roadside as practicable exercising due
care when passing a standing vehicle or one proceeding
in the same direction. A bicyclist may move left under
any of the following conditions: 1) To make a left turn
from a left turn lane or pocket; 2) To avoid debris, drains,
or other hazardous conditions on the right; 3) To pass
a slower moving vehicle; 4) To occupy any available
lane when traveling at the same speed as other traffic;
5) To travel no more than two abreast when traffic is
not impeded, but otherwise ride in single file. Every
person riding a bicycle shall ride in the same direction as
vehicular traffic.

This map represents the State’s commitment to
encourage safe bicycling opportunities throughout
the state. It reinforces the New Jersey Department
of Transportation’s support for bicycling and the
Complete Streets philosophy, and its goal to make
New Jersey a sustainable, livable, walkable and
bikeable community.
Combining a bicycle trip with public transportation offers timesaving mobility options.
It’s particularly good for long commutes, hilly areas, and bad weather. Folding bicycles
provide flexibility for traveling during peak commute hours.

continually change: pavements deteriorate, roads
are resurfaced and reconstructed, increased
development may lead to increased traffic. The

Road Types
Roads in New Jersey shown in white are unrated.
The suitability measures are geared to an average or
typical adult bicyclist. They are intended to provide
guidance on the level of comfort or challenge a
bicyclist might experience on a given roadway. The
suitability ratings pertain to the roadway links and
not the intersections. The ratings should not be
considered a measure of safety. Ultimately, the level
of comfort or challenge, or even the safety associated
with riding on a given section of roadway is in large
part dependent on the competence, confidence and
judgment of the bicyclist. The suitability of a roadway
for bicycling can also be related to the purpose of
the trip (touring, commuting, etc.).

This Map and Resource Guide provides a wealth of
information for bicyclists. This includes information
on the suitability of many of the state’s roadways
(mostly “through” roads) for bicycling. The ratings
are based on traffic volumes, traffic speeds, outside
travel lane width, the availability of a paved shoulder,
presence of parking and land use. Local access/
residential streets have not been rated. However,
with their low traffic volumes and speeds, they are
generally suitable for bicycling. Also, roadways for
which adequate data was not available were not
rated.

•
• Be visible and predictable. Wear
light, bright colored and/or reflective
material. Use front and rear lights and
use caution when riding at night.
• Be alert. Never think the other
drivers will not make a mistake.
• Be prepared. Learn what to do
in any situation when you need
to act fast, and always expect the
unexpected.
• Act in time. Plan ahead, anticipate
turns, stops and lane changes; don’t
try maneuvers at the last second.
• Signal and communicate.
Use hand signals to indicate turns.
Try to establish eye contact with
other drivers.
• Obey the rules of the road. Don’t
ride on sidewalks. Sidewalks are for
pedestrians. Be part of the traffic
mix. In general, you are best served if
you operate your bicycle as a vehicle.
• Yielding the right-of-way.
A bicyclist should always be prepared
to yield and are required to yield
to: pedestrians, emergency
vehicles, buses, school buses,
and postal vehicles.
• Select proper lane position for the
situation. Ride side-by-side with cars
in wide lanes (14 feet wide or more).
In lanes 13 feet or less, position
yourself several feet out into the lane
where motorists will see you and not
be invited to squeeze by in the same
lane. On narrow lanes (10 feet or
less), a bicyclist may “take the lane”,
by positioning themselves at or near
the center of the lane.
•
w
Know how to ri
de your bike! If
you are a bit rust
get out your bike
y,
and practice. Dev
elop your riding
skills so you will
be able to confide
ntly handle more
difficult riding situ
ations.
Plan your route.
Do some explorin
g to find the
best route. You m
ay discover that
th
e best route is
not necessarily th
e one with the le
ast traffic.
• Give yourse
lf enough time.
For example, at
one-half hour for
least
a four mile trip. Ta
ke your time and
enjoy the ride.
•
•
Make sure your
bike and other eq
uipment is well
maintained. The
bike should be in
proper working
order for every rid
e. You should alw
ays check your
bike over includin
g air pressure, tir
es, wheels,
brakes, chain, ge
ars, seat, handle
ba
rs, and for any
loose nuts or bo
lts.
Make sure your
bike is properly
fitted. Having
a correctly sized
and properly fitte
d bicycle is
necessary for yo
ur comfort and w
ill better enable
you to control yo
ur bike.
• Wear a helm
et. It’s as import
ant as wearing a
belt in a car. In th
seat
e event of a cras
h, a properly fitte
helmet can prev
d
ent or reduce the
severity of head
injuries. In NJ, an
yone under 17 ye
ars of age must
wear an approved
helmet.
• Contact your
local bicycle club
. Affiliation with
your local bicycle
club is a wonderf
ul way to enjoy
recreational biking
. They often prov
ide valuable
information for bi
cyclists as well as
opportunities
for social activities
and improving sk
ills.
