Bicycle Program

Class II Bikeways

Riverside's existing bikeway network is comprised of Class II bikeways along many major streets. A Class II bikeway, often referred to as a bike lane, provides a striped and stenciled lane for one-way travel on a street or highway.

The backbone of the bikeway network is the 9.5 mike bike lane that follows the Magnolia/Market corridor. Cross-town routes, from northwest to southeast, are less common than routes that extend the length of the City.

Victoria Avenue Class 2 Bike Lanes Ride For Our Future
In 1964, 50% of kids rode bicycles to school and the obesity rate was 12%. In 2004, 3% bicycled and the obesity rate was 45%.

Riverside uses standard standard Caltrans bikeway signage for class II bike lanes and class III bike routes. Other bikeway signage designate hazards, clearance requirements, approaching intersections, the need to stop or yield, and staging areas.
