Bike Trail Safety
Before you order beach bike rentals, take some time to go over the general bicycle safety rules. If you are an avid cyclist, or if you are a casual bike rider, you will be familiar with most of these reminders. However, it is wise to take time to review this safety information and pass it along to the other members of your party. Going over bicycle safety procedures is essential if you are riding with young cyclists who may not have much experience bicycling on public paths.
Bike safety begins with always wearing a helmet. Stay on the right side of the paths while you ride around Sea Pines or other parts of the island. If you are going to pass another cyclist from behind, be sure to alert them of your intentions. Riding a bike on a golf cart path is not permitted in Sea Pines. Bicyclists should always remain on bicycle paths when provided. Riding a bicycle at night is dangerous and prohibited in Sea Pines.
After you receive your bike rental, you might be eager to start pedaling around Sea Pines. However, reading through these guidelines of trail conduct will help you and your party stay safe on your fun adventure. Riding a bicycle is a lot like driving a vehicle; if you know the rules of the road, you will likely get there safely and more efficiently.
While your party explores Sea Pines, be sure to follow posted signs. You must stop at all stop signs you encounter on the bike path. Pedestrians and cyclists often have the right of way while using bike paths, yet this is not a rule for the entire island. Please check for traffic at each intersection before crossing it. Cyclists will encounter many stop signs along the trails on Sea Pines, which should be a major consideration for any groups of cyclists who are traveling together. Please be sure to keep your family and friends safe as you make your way around the island.
