Bike Signs and Pavement Markings

Come to a full stop. When you’re riding on the road, cyclists must stop at stop signs. Check for traffic all ways, and proceed when safe.

Slow down and yield or stop for traffic crossing in front of you.

This sign indicates those streets which are a bicycle route. This sign is often combined with an arrow indicating the direction of the bicycle route changing.
