Rules of the Road

The Colorado Park 2 Park Challenge is held on open roads and is a Rules of the Road ride. You are responsible to follow the rules of the road.  The only time you do not need to stop at a stop sign or red light is if a police officer or Colorado State Patrol wave you through.  If the Colorado Park 2 Park receives reports of risky behavior we will seek out the cyclist and remove them from the remainder of the ride.

  • Bicyclists have all the rights and duties applicable to the driver of any other vehicle and can be penalized for violating traffic laws.
  • Obey traffic laws, signs and signals
  • Ride in the right lane, except when passing another vehicle, preparing for a left turn or avoiding hazards
  • Ride on paved shoulders and bike lanes when present and free of hazards
  • Ride on the right, never ride against traffic
  • Ride single-file
  • Use hand signals to indicate right or left turns, slowing or stopping
  • Act like a vehicle on the roads — bicycles have the same rights and responsibilities
  • Never assume motorists see you or that you have the right-of-way
  • Wear appropriate gear to protect yourself: glasses and gloves
  • Helmets are required
  • Expect the unexpected; your first responsibility is to be safe
