Giving Cyclists The Road

When you're on the road in Grand Junction, CO, you'll likely encounter bicyclists on the road as well. While you're making a turn from one road to another, you need to be aware of your surroundings since cyclists ride on the right side of the road. If there are bikers in the area, let them cross the road before you turn.

If you're passing a biker on the road, do so with caution. Red Rock Hyundai can examine your brakes and your brake lights to ensure that these components are working properly so that you can efficiently slow down on the road. Slow your speed until you get past the biker so as not to startle the cyclist and to minimize impact in the event of an accident.

There are sometimes bike lanes along city roads and even on rural roads. Don't drive in these lanes as they are designated for cyclists. This can help to prevent hitting a biker if someone is using the lane.
