VDOT Provides Biking Safety and Commuting Tips for Tomorrow's Bike to Work Day

This week is National Bike to Work Week, and as the culminating event, commuters are encouraged to leave their cars at home and bike to work tomorrow, Friday, May 21.

Events are being organized around the state as part of the celebration to remind commuters about the various transportation choices available in Virginia.

Biking safety and commuting tips are available on VDOT’s Web site. Among the things bikers and drivers should be aware of:
  • Bicyclists have the same rights and duties as vehicles.
  • Vehicles must pass with at least two feet clearance from bicyclists and at safe speeds.
  • Bicyclists may ride in the center of the travel lane under certain circumstances.
For more on Bike to Work Day, visit the Washington Area Bicyclist Association website.
