Florida Bike Laws
Florida’s bicycle laws are similar to most other states. For your own safety we suggest you learn and obey all bicycling laws. Nationally, only about 30 percent of bicycle injuries treated in emergency rooms involve collisions with motor vehicles and fewer than one in 700 bicycle injuries is fatal. In 70 percent of police-reported bicycle-motor vehicle crashes, the cyclists involved had violated traffic rules. Download this brochure and know the rules. (Provided by the City of Naples.)
Remember though, even if you’re obeying the rules, you need to watch for vehicles. There are many visiting drivers and elderly drivers here in Florida. Being right doesn’t make up for being dead.
Wilderness Bike Rides
If you are looking for a “back to nature” bicycling adventure, consider a bike ride at nearby Collier Seminole State Park. The trails are quite flat and always scenic. The park entrance is about a 45 minute drive from downtown Naples.
