North Carolina Bicycle Laws

Bicycle safety is of the utmost importance to us at Hungry Town Tours. In North Carolina, the bicycle has the legal status of a vehicle. This means that bicyclists have full rights and responsibilities on the roadway and are subject to the regulations governing the operation of a motor vehicle.

North Carolina Traffic Laws:

  • Ride on the right in the same direction as other traffic.
  • Obey all traffic signs and signals.
  • Use hand signals to communicate intended movements.
  • Wear a bicycle helmet on public roads, public paths and public rights-of-way.
  • Helmets mandatory for bicyclists under 16 years old.
  • No riding on sidewalks.
  • Yield to pedestrians and stop for people at crosswalks.
  • Drinking and driving laws apply to bicyclists.
  • Bicyclists must obey all stop signs and red lights.

Remember, the bicyclist always loses in a conflict with a motor vehicle. Ride defensively in a predictable manner to avoid accidents. Be courteous to other drivers.

Recommended Safety Precautions:

  • Always wear a helmet.
  • Use a backpack or bicycle bag to carry goods.
  • Avoid biking at night.
  • When riding with a group, ride single file.
  • Wear bright clothes to increase visibility; be sure your bicycle is the right size and keep it in good repair.

Local Guidelines & Tips:

  • Do not ride bicycles on the Beaufort boardwalk.
  • Riders should respect their surroundings when riding through the historic district and residential areas.
  • Be aware of cars backing up from diagonal parking spaces on Front Street and parking lots. Watch for backup lights. Drivers may not see you.
  • Use extreme caution when passing parallel parked cars as car doors may open into the street.
  • Bring plenty of water and sunscreen.
  • Make sure your shoelaces are tied tight, so they do not wrap around the pedals.
