Sharrows

Sharrows, or shared bike lanes are typically identified by two chevrons on tiop of a bicycle symbol. It is designed to be shared by both motorists and bicyclists. Normally, sharrows will be on low speed/low volume roadways where the speed does not exceed 35 mph.

Bicyclists should ride in the middle of the travel lane on sharrows, to avoid car doors from suddenly opening. Please keep in mind to follow the rules of the road: yield to pedestrians, obey traffic signs and signals, and ride with the traffic flow.
