Sidewalk Cycling Vero Beach
Mary asked: Is it ok by Vero Beach, Florida law to ride your bike on the sidewalk on Route 60, west of town?
Unless a local ordinance prohibits sidewalk cycling, it is legal throughout Florida.
s. 316.2065 – Bicycle Regulations
(9)A person propelling a vehicle by human power upon and along a sidewalk, or across a roadway upon and along a crosswalk, has all the rights and duties applicable to a pedestrian under the same circumstances.
(10)A person propelling a bicycle upon and along a sidewalk, or across a roadway upon and along a crosswalk, shall yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian and shall give an audible signal before overtaking and passing such pedestrian.
I can find no local ordinance that would prohibit sidewalk cycling for the Town of Vero Beach or Indian River County. You can see ordinances for Vero Beach here:
