Welcome, Deerfield Beach cyclists! Thank you for joining us over at Bill Bone Bike Law where we work hard to raise awareness about bicycle safety as we unite the South Florida cycling community. Deerfield Beach cyclists are often struggling to find a place where they can learn, share, and discuss their effort in finding safe places to ride throughout the area.
As a whole, Deerfield Beach has truly led the South Florida cycling community in their pursuit of building “Complete Streets”. These streets are designated as streets for everyone from pedestrians to cyclists to public transportation to motorists. Please use this Deerfield Beach cycling resource center for direct access to the following information:

As the Complete Streets implementation continues, residents of Deerfield Beach will notice a vast improvement to the number of bike lanes located throughout the city. Unfortunately, there are still many, many streets that lack a bike lane for cyclists to safely travel along. As we work to raise awareness and create more bike lanes for riders, it is important that cyclists understand their duty on the road. In the event of a crash, a bicycle is treated as vehicle and therefore cyclists must adhere to traffic laws at all times.
Below you will find a map of Deerfield Beach’s bike lanes as distinguished by the markings. Please take a moment to review the exact locations of these bike lanes in order to plan your next cycling outing safely and effectively.
Do you know of additional bike lanes that are not marked above? We would love to hear from you! Please send any additional information by completing this form. If you or a loved one has suffered any injuries while riding in a bike lane, one of our Deerfield Beach bike accident attorneys are available to discuss your legal options right away.
Sharing cycling routes is a common activity for many Deerfield Beach riders. When a new, challenging route is discovered it is typical to spread the word. From riding along the beach to navigating the local streets, having a solid idea of the mileage, present bike lanes, and overall traffic is important for safety. In addition to riding along new routes on the streets, many cyclists choose to diversify their rides in public parks. Cycling in a local park is a wonderful way to meet new friends and cyclists in the Deerfield Beach area.
