Bear Creek Greenway - Rules to Ride By

by Gary Shaff on Dec, 24 2014

A report earlier this week describing a pedestrian injury on a multi-use path in Clackamas County serves as a reminder to:

  1. be aware of and courteous to other Bear Creek Greenway (BCG) users,
  2. ride at a speed that reflects the conditions (but not more than 15 mph),
  3. buy and use a bell (or your voice) to forewarn other users of the BCG of your approach,
  4. slow down when passing people walking and be especially cautious when they have a dog, and
  5. always drive defensively.
  6. If in doubt – refer to item 1, above.

Here’s a more extensive story about conflicts on multi-use paths.
