Biking in Folsom

Local trails are a great place for fun, recreation and transportation.

Follow these guidelines for respectful and responsible use of city trails, so everyone can enjoy them.

General:
  • Respect the environment and the rights of property owners
  • Don’t block the trail
  • Travel at a safe speed
  • Pass with care
  • Bicyclists keep right except to pass
  • Pedestrians keep left to face oncoming cyclists
  • Be aware, look and listen
  • Avoid covering both ears with headphones as it can be difficult to hear what’s going on around you—this is the law for bicyclists
  • Establish eye contact when passing
  • Look before switching lanes or directions of travel
  • When you need to stop, move to the edge of the trail or trail shoulder and leave room for others to pass

Bicyclists:
  • Stick to the right side of the trail
  • Yield to pedestrians
  • To pass, go to the left side of oncoming pedestrians/joggers
  • Ride at a safe speed; single-file in congested conditions or in areas with reduced visibility
  • Slower traffic has the right of way
  • Slow down at bridges, tight turns, intersections, and when approaching others
  • Use audible warnings when passing
  • Use lights when dark
  • Always wear a helmet

Pedestrians:
  • Keep to the left side of the trail (facing oncoming cyclists)
  • Watch for other trail users
  • Maintain single-file in congested conditions and in areas with reduced visibility

Dog Walkers:
  • Keep dogs under control and on leash: Dogs must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet
  • Dog owners must clean up after dogs
  • Dogs must remain on the trail at all times and are not permitted in open space or preserve areas
