Bicycle Traffic Law | Florida Bicycle Association

Overview of Florida Laws for Cyclists

same-rights-same-rules-01In Florida the bicycle is legally defined as a vehicle and the bicyclist is a driver. Bicyclists have the same rights to the roadways, and must obey the same traffic laws as the drivers of other vehicles. These laws include stopping for stop signs and red lights, riding with the flow of traffic, using lights at night, yielding the right-of-way when entering a roadway and yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks.

There is only one road and it is up to bicyclists and motorists to treat each other with care and respect. Adherence to the law is the foundation for this respect, but the law itself is simply a codification of the rules of movement that make all road users predictable to one another.

To learn more about safe, predictable bicycling, see our Info for Bicyclists and Info for Group Riding pages.

2012 WENDLAND MEMORIAL WINNERS


 The Cowboys, winners of the 2012 Jan E. Wendland
Memorial: George Galvan, Zak Smith, Will Traver, Will Tankard, and Samira
Waernlund










What do you get when you combine the low-impact aerobic workout of cycling,
the challenge of a racket sport, and the camaraderie of
a team sport? Bicycle Polo!


Polo is thought to be the oldest team sport
known to man, dating from the days when Persian warriors first
rode horses into battle. Bicycle polo evolved a bit later, having

has long been known as “the king of games,” but the money and skills
required have greatly limited its popularity. Bicycle
