  14. Garry Glubka – Safety IncentiveAwards Last year we only allowed leaders to nominate leaders, this year it is open to any club member to nominate a leader. We would like to recognize leaders who are: • Promoting safety in their briefings – emphasizing any one of the safety topics introduced in Leader e-mails or in the Activity News. • Demonstrating safe riding skills - consistently. • Mentoring and teaching other riders how to be safer on their bikes..  The Safety and Leader Incentive program begins now ! • TCBC Safety committee

  15. George HagemannTCBC Board Member • Minnesota CYCLING laws • Cycling through Roundabouts • Trail Crossings

  16. Minnesota Cycling Laws • Regular vehicle laws apply to cyclists since cyclists are considered a vehicle in Minnesota • See MN Cycling Laws card [handout] for bicycle specific laws

  17. Roundabout Types • Single lane, low speed • Multi-lane, low speed • Multi-lane, high speed

  18. Roundabouts • Take the lane -ride in the middle of the lane so drivers can see you. In a low speed, single lane round about you should be able to ride close to the speed of traffic. OR • Ride on the side path - use side path and crosswalks as a pedestrian. In high speed roundabouts this is the recommended option for safety and so you don’t impede traffic.

  19. Single Lane Roundabout

  20. Multi-lane Roundabout

  21. Trail Crossings • Where a trail intersects a road is one of the most dangerous spots for cyclists • Trail crossings are subject to local jurisdictions when they cross roads • Local jurisdictions can decide when to stripe or otherwise mark a crossing – making it a crosswalk
