As you enjoy our beautiful island by bike, please be sure to wear a helmet (adults and children), lock your bike, and keep up with the local rules for where and when you can ride. Take advantage of the one-way, Northbound or Southbound marked bike lanes on Dune, First and Avalon Avenues whenever possible.
Remember these important rules:
- Riding on Dune Drive sidewalks in the Business District is prohibited (walking a bicycle is permitted)
- No riding on the boardwalk after 10am
- Use bike lanes on Dune, First and Avalon Avenues
- Always wear a helmet
- Have a bell and a light
- Follow the same rules of the road as a driver of a vehicle, including stopping at signs and traffic lights and yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks
Lock Your Bike / Registration
An unlocked bicycle presents a crime of opportunity and provides an easy way for a theft to occur. The Avalon Police Department has a free bicycle registration program that enables you to register your bicycle with the police in the event it would be stolen.
