Ask HPD: Bicyclists on Roadway


Question: Can bicyclists ride side-by-side and take up a whole lane?

Answer: Bicyclists on a roadway must ride single file as near to the right-hand curb on the edge of the roadway or on the shoulder lane off the roadway as practicable. Violators can face a $72 fine.

Bicyclists may only ride side-by-side in a bike lane if the bike lane, or path, is wide enough and when there are no signs prohibiting it.
