Riding on public paved roads requires a set of etiquette that's different from Overland Base Camp's trail riding etiquette.  We use MassBike's version of road riding rules as our starting point.

Always remember that you represent all cyclists every time you're on your bike.

  • You represent every cyclist.  Be courteous and helpful to others on the road.  Give pedestrians the right of way.
  • Obey traffic laws:  including stop signs and stoplights.
  • Use hand signals when you’re turning or stopping.
  • You may ride two abreast, but must facilitate passing traffic. This means riding single file when faster traffic wants to pass, or staying in the right-most lane on a multi-lane road.
  • Stay alert and focused:  Avoid distractions while riding - no earbuds, no texting or talking on the phone.
