Road Safety Rules
- Ride your bike on the designated BIKE ROUTES or in BIKE LANES on the road.
- Just about anything goes on Duval Street, except you can’t ride bikes on sidewalks on Duval Street.
- Bikes are the same as cars! Follow all usual traffic laws and signs.
- Follow the rules of the road because you share the road with cars and other vehicles.
- Never ride the wrong way down a one-way street.
- Be careful in the dark. Always use bike lights at night and other reflective accessories. Neon body paint is good.
- Chill and go with the Flow. That is, the flow of traffic.
- Always ride on the right side of the street, going in the same direction as traffic.
- Stay out of the middle of the street. Yes, we are talking to you.
- Yield to pedestrians and chickens. Especially chickens and chickadees.
- Be alert on Key West streets. We have a lot of travelers in cars, trucks, mopeds, golf carts, bikes, motorcycles, and on foot. It can be a veritable cluster of arbitrary objects on our roads.
- Don’t drink and bike. Literally, don’t try to juggle a drink while navigating your two-wheeler.
- Don’t get distracted while biking on the road with earphones or the voices in your head.
Secure Your Ride
- LOCK UP YOUR BIKE!!!
- Lock your bike to a bike rack. There are bike racks all over the island.
- Use reliable locks to secure your bike. Rubber bands and silly string don’t work well.
- Trees, fire hydrants, street signs, and private property aren’t places to lock your bike.
- Do not leave valuables in/on your bike when it is unattended. This includes most things not attached to your body.
Costume Cycling Safety
- Even ninjas have bike lights – be visible at all times!
- Make sure your tutu isn’t blocking your bike light.
- If you have a long wig, weave, or dreads, be sure they don’t get caught in the spokes.
- Make sure your tights are spandex – you wouldn’t want a tear.
- Make sure head gear doesn’t block your peripheral vision.
- A costume with a short cape will increase your aerodynamics.
- Safety pins and Velcro tabs are the best solutions for tails, capes, robes, tassels, drapes, and droopy body parts.
- More than one person on one bike is tempting, but is not a good idea.
- Make sure your tail has a proper resting place before you start biking. Don’t want to think about where to place your tail? Wear a nubby tail costume such as a polar bear, hedgehog, or bunny...
- Stash your sword on your back. Make sure the sharp point is UP.
- If you’re a storm trooper, you have built-in kneepads. That’s a plus for biking.
- Make sure your wing weight is evenly distributed so you don’t lose your balance.
- It’s hot here and when you’re biking, the less fur, the better.
- Don’t let your tentacles get tangled.
- Face paint is your friend and it won’t block your vision.
- Make sure your costume lets your legs and arms move freely, even if you are a mummy.
- Don’t let your heels get caught in your pedals.
- Secure all hats on your head or you may lose them.
