Laws and Ordinances
There are many state laws and local ordinances related to cycling. This page lists Milwaukee's ordinances, the State Laws and has links to ordinances for nearby communities. Cyclists are granted the same rights and subject to all the same duties as motorists (except for those that apply specifically to motorists and cyclists).
We list these laws here to help you avoid problems and ride safely. It is important to note that state laws supercede local ordinances in all cases except those regarding sidewalk riding and bicycle registration. Some municipalities may still have older conflicting laws on the books.
