Biking rules and regulations in Sioux Falls

Posted: Updated:

Friday is national bike to work day. Before you hit the road, brush up on the laws for cyclists in Sioux Falls.

Bicyclists can ride in the street – either sharing the lane with a car or taking the lane, which alerts drivers it isn’t safe to pass in the same lane. They can also ride on sidewalks in Sioux Falls, except for a few blocks in downtown.

Drivers need to give a three-foot passing radius to cyclists, and in single-lane roads, bikers should always ride single file.

Finally, on one-way streets, bikers are allowed to ride on the left or right side of the road.
