Riley County, KS- In Kansas, bicycles have a right to be on the roads and should be treated as another vehicle, and with the warmer weather on the horizon, you can expect to see cyclist soon.


The Riley County Police put a few things out on their Facebook page where they state that you should allow a minimum of 3 feet between your vehicle and a cyclist when passing and to check over your shoulder before re-entering the lane.


On lanes that are too narrow to share, cyclists may use the full lane by riding in the middle.


Look for approaching cyclists before making turns. They may be moving faster than you think.


Check for cyclists before exiting a parked vehicle — a car door might open directly into a cyclist’s path.


Don’t harass or endanger a cyclist. This is considered reckless endangerment by law, a misdemeanor offense.
