Group cycling is popular throughout South Florida, especially areas with stretches of long roadways such as Weston. It is important for groups to follow the rules of the road to ensure an enjoyable and safe ride for all.
Respect the Right-of-way and Traffic Signals
Respect the right-of-way of all vehicles on the roadway. Lead riders should stop at all stop signs and red lights, in the right-most lane of the roadway (not taking up the entire lane.)
Position Change and Group Communication
Before changing lanes or position within a paceline, always check for traffic. Pace lines are only for the experienced bicyclist. Alert other riders of potentially dangerous conditions or road hazards. Hand signals should be used to signal a rider’s or the group’s movements to one another and to motorists.
Riding Single File or by Twos
By Florida law, bicyclists may ride two abreast unless impeding traffic. Groups shall not take up the entire right lane of the roadway for an extended period of time. While riding on a two lane road, if continual oncoming traffic prevents motorists from easily passing, ride in a single file or split the bicycle group into smaller groups.
Riding to the Right
Bicyclists should ride always ride in the bike lane or to the right of the roadway when there is no bike lane. Bicyclists are allowed to take command of the lane if the lane is blocked or too narrow to safely share with a vehicle.
