Tips - Bicycling on LSU Campus  

  • Obey all traffic laws, for example: Don't ride on the sidewalk, ride with traffic (not against it), yield to pedestrians, stop at all stop signs and red lights, use front and rear lights in dark, signal when turning, alert other cyclists, walkers and joggers when passing
  • Don't ride with loud music in ears
  • Encourage your friends to ride - biking is always safer and more fun when in a group!
  • Biking in the Heat - bring change of dry clothes, arrive a few mins early to change and cool down
  • Biking in the Cold - cover your hands, ears & neck, wear lip balm , layer clothes as your body will warm up after riding a few minutes
