Welcome to the MN Bicycling Handbook
The handbook is free of charge to individuals and available in large quantities for organizations.
The Minnesota Bicycling Handbook is meant to help bicyclists use Minnesota’s roads and trails safely and enjoyably.
Although it includes information about many Minnesota traffic laws, it is not a legal document or a substitute for the Minnesota Statute 169.222 “Operation of a Bicycle.” For the current Minnesota Traffic Regulations, visit this site. A bicyclist should never jeopardize their safety for the convenience of others.
The 2021 handbook is made possible with support from AAA Minnesota-Iowa, Anoka County TMO Commute Solutions, Bike Thief River Falls, Brazil Law Group, Dero, Discover Austin Minnesota, Digi-Key, Hennepin County, Minnesota Bike Law, Minnesota Department of Health, Minnesota Department of Transportation, Pedal Fergus Falls, Ramsey County, Quality Bicycle Products, Three Rivers Park District, University of Minnesota Park & Transportation Services, and Visit Fergus Falls.
