Minnesota Statute 169.222, Subdivision 4(c):

Persons riding bicycles upon a roadway or shoulder shall not ride more than two abreast and shall not impede the normal and reasonable movement of traffic and, on a laned roadway, shall ride within a single lane.

Minnesota Statute 169.222, Subdivision 4:

(a) Every person operating a bicycle upon a roadway shall ride as close as practicable to the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway


Must a bicyclist ride in a bike lane or a side path?

No. There is no law which requires bicyclists to use a bike lane. Bicyclists may need to use adjacent lanes to pass another bicyclist, to avoid being too close to parked cars (if opening car doors could obstruct their path), to avoid obstructions or slippery conditions or to prepare for a turn. Whenever bicyclists enter or exit a bike lane or side path, they should signal and yield to motorists already in an adjacent travel lane.


Where in the right half of the roadway must a bicyclist ride?

Because bikes are narrow it is sometimes possible for bikes and vehicles to share the same lane, Where this is possible, the bicyclist must keep as far to the right as safe

May bicyclists ride two abreast?

Although riding single-file is often safest, bicyclists are allowed to ride two-abreast on roads. Minnesota Statute 169.222, Subdivision 4:

(c) Persons riding bicycles upon a roadway or shoulder shall not ride more than two abreast and shall not impede the normal and reasonable movement of traffic and, on a laned roadway, shall ride within a single lane.
