Our biking visitors can enjoy touring the battlefield too! There is a bike lane set aside on the battlefield tour road and bike racks at the tour stops.
When riding your bicycle at Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, please consider these safety points:
- Bicyclists must travel in the bike path (lane to the left marked by yellow line and bike symbols) in the same direction as other vehicles.
- Travel below the posted 20 mph speed limit.
- Protect yourself. Wear your helmet!
- Be attentive to other users on the tour road. You must yield to pedestrians. Watch for automobiles!
- Be careful and look both ways at the intersections on Old Battleground and New Garden Roads.
Bicycle Helmet Law
On 10/1/2001, the CHILD BICYCLE SAFETY ACT went into effect as enacted by the North Carolina General Assembly. Here is what it means to you and your child:
All children below the age of 16 must wear a protective bicycle helmet that fits well and is fastened securely to the child's head using the straps of the helmet while they are operating a bicycle.
This law also applies to children under the age of 16 who are passengers on bicycles being operated by another person. This does not apply to tricycles.
This requirement applies to all public roadways, public bicycle paths, or other public maintained right-of-ways.
Any parent/guardian found responsible for violation of the Child Helmet Safety Law may be ordered to pay a civil fine of up to ten dollars ($10).
