Rules of the Road

Bicycles are considered vehicles under Oregon state law. This gives cyclists the right to share the road with motor vehicles. Just as drivers must, anyone riding a bicycle must also follow the law. This way, everyone is predictable-- and being predictable makes the road safer for everyone. Need a refresher? The State of Oregon has an excellent bicycle safety manual that you can review by clicking here.
