Bicycle Safety

The Bicycle Safety Implementation Subcommittee (BSIS) of the OUTBoard was formed in June 2017 to begin implementation of the “Drive Safely, Ride Safely” Campaign developed by the Bicycle Safety Task Force (BSTF) through its work in 2016-2017. The Campaign is designed to foster mutual respect and shared interest in road safety between motorists and cyclists. Tasks include motorist and cyclist education with local signage and messaging that focuses on common-sense safety and sharing the road. Recommended safety practices emphasize safe passing, the importance of motorists and cyclists yielding to emergency vehicles, best practices for large groups of riders and safety equipment for bicycles.

The  website provides information on the Bicycle Safety Campaign, bicycle safety laws, Campaign social media links, public education materials and links to various bicycle organizations.
