Where can you legally ride in Texas? Do you need to wear a bike helmet? What’s the difference between a bike lane and a bike path? Below are TxDOT resources to help you make informed decisions about how, when and where to ride. There’s a good chance you also drive a motor vehicle, so make sure you know your responsibilities to bicyclists as a driver. Learning about pedestrian safety is just as important because everyone is a pedestrian at some point in their travel.
