This page is dedicated to providing the basic information when it comes to being a cyclist on the streets in Ohio. It’s always a good idea to look up the rules for your specific city but this will be a good place to start for information. ODOT publishes a Cycling Smart Guide that goes over laws and other street cycling information. Everyone needs to read this, cyclist and motorist!
The American League of bicyclist give us a good reference on the Rules of the Road
