Monrovia is a great place to ride a bike, and the City is constantly working to improve cycling conditions! Whether it’s through the Monrovia Renewal repairs to our streets and sidewalks, or the installation of new bike racks and sharrows throughout town, there’s never been a better time to hop on a bike!

Bicycle Master Plan

The City adopted its Bicycle Master Plan in July 2016, which was amended in June 2018. This plan helps set a vision for how to improve bicycling in Monrovia, with a variety of goals and objectives.

Follow the Rules of the Road

Bicyclists should ride with the flow of traffic, and always yield to pedestrians. Beware of parked cars opening their doors! Riders should strive to be predictable, and avoid swerving when riding in traffic. A friendly reminder that getting behind the wheel under the influence is illegal, whether it's driving a car or riding a bike!

If you want to use the sidewalk, you must walk your bike. It's not safe and against the Monrovia Municipal Code to ride a bike on the sidewalk.  

If you're under 18, you are required to wear a helmet! However, it's safest if everyone wears a helmet when riding.

Drivers should always leave at least three feet as a buffer when driving near a bicyclist! Look out for bicyclists before opening your car door. Learn more about the Three Feet for Bicycle Safety Campaign.
