Once you leave the trail and enter towns, please respect and pay attention to local traffic. Town streets are not bike trails and cyclists are strongly encouraged to follow laws. You are now a “vehicle” and should proceed single file, with traffic. Stop at stop signs. Don’t assume that cars will stop for you in crosswalks. Don’t ride on sidewalks. Be considerate when you chain your bike so as not to block walkways. Treat the town properties as you would want visitors to treat the community where you live.
