What You Should Know About Biking in Myrtle Beach

Each year the City of Myrtle Beach publishes a bicycle safety brochure along with maps designating bike lanes and multipurpose lanes around the city for biking in Myrtle Beach. For the convenience of our guests staying with us at Myrtle Beach Resorts we’ll share that information with you here. Bicycle rentals in Myrtle Beach are easy to come by as we reported in a recent blog entitled Where to Find Bicycle Rentals in Myrtle Beach.

What You Should Know About Cycling Myrtle Beach

Map of Bicycle Lanes and Paths in Myrtle Beach (PDF)

Español-Inglés — Spanish and English Brochure (PDF)

This valuable information is what keeps our many cycling visitors and residents safe in and around the Grand Strand area. Thanks to a suggestion from the Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Committee, the city has created a new mobile device BikeMB App that shows bicycle trails in The Market Common. Now in beta testing, the app also lets riders log any bicycle accidents they may have had. Click here to view the new app.

10 Important Facts for Safe Cycling in Myrtle Beach

1.   Bicyclists riding on the roadway must travel in the extreme right lane in the direction of the traffic — not against it!

2.   Whenever possible, bicyclists should ride on bike paths or designated bicycle lanes, such as those located on Mr. Joe White Avenue or North Ocean Boulevard.

3.   Bicyclists must obey all road signs and traffic signals, and must give turn signals just as motorists do.

4.   Bicyclists may not ride on ordinary pedestrian sidewalks. They may ride on special wide, multi-purpose sidewalks designed for a combination of bicycle and pedestrian traffic, such as those running along Grissom Parkway.

5.   Bicyclists should not disregard the rights of pedestrians and motorists — respect them just as you want them to respect you.

6.   It is illegal to ride through a pedestrian crosswalk. Climb off the bike and walk your bicycle across the road.

7.   A bicyclist riding in the dark must have a headlight on the front of his bicycle and a red reflector on the rear.

8.   Never carry additional passengers on a bicycle!

9.   Watch motorists carefully! They may be talking on a cell phone, texting, eating… But they are bigger than you are so, as the saying goes, “give a fool a wide berth.”

10. Protect your head. Wear a helmet!

Bicycles are allowed on the beach before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. from May 1 through Labor Day. Bicycles are allowed on the boardwalk only between 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. from May 1 through Labor Day.

Exclusive Fire & Hula Show Only at Myrtle Beach Resort

When you stay with us at Myrtle Beach Resort you will probably feel like you’re on a vacation in the Caribbean Islands. We hear that a lot.
