The Bellevue Police Department
and the City of Bellevue
published a brochure
outlining bicycle safety for children and adults. They outline specific laws every bicyclist should know before riding their bicycle in Bellevue city limits.
If you are riding your bicycle on the sidewalk, it must be done cafefully and at a reasonable speed thats appropriate for the current conditions.
Pedestrians have the right away, so a bicyclist must yield to them. If you are passing a pedestrian, you must give an audible signal to alert them before you pass.
A helmet is required at all times while operating a bicycle on city owned property (ie public roadway, bicycle path or sidewalk) regardless of the rider's age.
