RIDE RIGHT Tips for Bicycle Safety
RIDE RIGHT is the safety program developed by RAGBRAI. The program name has a double meaning. Bicyclists are urged to ride on the right side of the road AND ride correctly according to traffic laws. The safety program follows the intent of the name. Bicyclists in Iowa have the same rights and duties as the operators of vehicles according to the Code of Iowa. Understanding Iowa’s traffic laws and how the laws apply to bicycling is important. But the laws by themselves don’t provide all the tips to riding a bicycle safely and enjoyably.
The RIDE RIGHT Guide compiles the tips on how safely to ride bicycles in Iowa —whether on the week of RAGBRAI or during other times of the year. We thank the Iowa Bicycle Coalition for compiling these safety tips.
