Resources

April 1, 2011 | Comments Off on Resources

Bike GT is pleased to offer a variety of resources for bicyclists, including commuter resources, information about local retailers and mechanics, and a brief overview of local advocacy organizations and current advocacy efforts in the area. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive library of relevant articles, maps, and links, and we will endeavor to keep all of these updated frequently.

Under the commuter resources heading, you’ll find information on incentives, higher quality routes, and much more. The advocacy resources include local organizations, ongoing legislative developments, and documents to help you become more informed and involved! The retail section is pretty much what it sounds like!

If you’re interested in getting started, and not sure where to begin, each page offers valuable information for you, and we’re always happy to help new riders find routes, get geared up, and so forth. Drop us an email, tweet at us, hit us on facebook, or leave a comment.

 

Being a Safe and Law-Abiding Cyclist:

  • Ride with traffic, on the street
  • Ride as close to the right as practicable (but not as far right as possible – you want to leave space to adjust for potholes, debris, or cars passing too closely to your left, and to be visible to cars on cross-streets)
  • Obey all signs & signals
  • Yield to pedestrians
  • Use front white and rear red lights
  • Signal all turns & stop

    Remember:
  • Be Predictable!
    Be Alert!
    Be Visible!
    Be Assertive!
    Be Courteous!
