25 Basic Etiquette Rules for Striding - Part 2
Rules for Striding on the Road
Sharing the streets with cars, bicycles, and other striders and pedestrians means you need to be extra vigilant.
• Avoid the middle of the road, even though it may be the most comfortable place to stride.
• Don't make sudden U-turns if you are striding an out and back route. Always look behind you before turning around.
• Don't relieve yourself in someone's yard, or in any other area where you might be seen by pedestrians or park users. You might not be shy but others may not be comfortable with it. Check for a port-a-potty or an open business along the route.
• Merge cautiously when you pass. Look over your shoulder for other stridersor cyclists who might be passing you.
• Pass on the left and state your intentions to the person(s) you are passing. Say "on your left" so they know to move to the right.
• Respect private property. Stay off of lawns and out of private cemeteries, parks, and other protected properties when you are striding.
• Stride facing traffic if there is no sidewalk or striding path. Stay to the side and as far from traffic as possible.
• Stride single-file or two abreast if you're striding with a group. This allows other striders, pedestrians or cyclists to pass without forcing them off the path or into oncoming traffic.
Respect your fellow striders (and cyclists, drivers, and other path users) by signaling your intentions when you change directions or pass.
