May is Bicycle Safety Month


Every May, Bicycle Safety Month is celebrated nationwide. In Queen Anne’s County, our bicycle and walking trails are ready for the summer, which means increased traffic on our trails and rural byways.

 During Bicycle Safety Month, we urge our residents and visitors to practice safety when cycling on two wheels and to stay alert and share the road as you drive on four.

 Tips for bicyclists:

  • Always wear a properly fitted helmet.
  • Check your bike equipment before heading out.
  • Obey traffic signs, signals, and lane markings; signal all turns.
  • Stay focused; look ahead for traffic and obstacles in your path.
  • Be visible: wear bright colors, reflective materials, and lights on your bicycle at night and in low-light conditions.

 Tips for Motorists:

  • Slow down, follow the speed limit, and pay attention.
  • Be patient when traveling behind a cyclist and pass with care; allow at least three feet of clearance. 
  • Yield to bicyclists at intersections and look for them before making turns.


Queen Anne’s County is also developing a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan to enhance access, safety, and the design of our trail system. As part of this focus, we consult regularly with the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, which focuses on bicycle and pedestrian access issues and identifies funding sources for the development and maintenance of bicycle and pedestrian facilities.

To learn more about our trails and parks, visit and search "Parks & Recreation." To learn more about the Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee, visit and select the Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee.
