Many of the routes identified on this map cross or run along public roads which are exposed to wear and tear and degradation due to weather, traffic, and other environmental concerns. Riders should remain alert as routes may contain pavement rutting, cracks, bumps, expansion joints, natural or other debris on pavement surfaces, and vegetation which may encroach on routes or portions thereof. Riders should also remain alert for areas of visual impairment and other irregularities that may impact rider and motorist ability to see each other or potential road hazards.

Bike Safety Tips

Ride Defensively
Prepare for the unexpected and plan alternative maneuvers to avoid conflict. Rules alone do not always protect bicyclists from injury. Be Alert. Be Visible. Ride Predictably.


Always Maintain Control of Your Bike
Keep both hands on the handlebars. Be prepared to stop or make quick turns. Follow lane markings. Cross railroad tracks at a 90-degree angle.


Obey Traffic Signs, Signals and Laws
Bicyclists must operate their bicycles like drivers of motor vehicles. Obeying laws helps you to be taken seriously by motorists.


Wear a Helmet
A bike helmet must fit well and be properly adjusted to do its job of protecting your head. It should fit snugly with the chin strap fastened. When purchasing a helmet, make sure it is approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) or the Snell Institute. Helmets should be replaced after the impact of an accident or even after. several years of wear and tear.

On Multi-Use Paths

Keep to the Right
All path users must keep to the right except when passing or turning left. Move off the path to the right when stopping.

Merge Correctly
Look both ways. Yield to through traffic at intersections.

Signal to Others
Cyclists, when approaching others, sound your bell or horn early, then pass safely on the left. Pedestrians, acknowledge with a wave when someone is overtaking.

Respect Nature
Do not disturb or feed wildlife. Keep to well established paths to protect habitats. Do not collect plant or animal material.

Right-of-Way
Cyclists and in-line skaters must yield to pedestrians. Pedestrians always have the right-ol-way.

Where to Skate
Follow the same rules as cyclists. Ensure your stride does not cross the center of the path.

Control Your Pet
Scottsdale ordinances require pets to be leashed while on the path and owners to clean up after their pets.

Be Visible
Outfit your bicycle with a headlight, rear light, and reflectors as you would for riding on the road.

Earphone Dangers
Keep the volume sufficiently low to be able to hear other path users approaching.
