Redstone Arsenal Bicycle Rules
Must have an access badge, issued to those who work on post, OR
Have a family member or retired military access card OR
Be accompanied by someone who has a badge AND
Carry an official picture ID like a driver’s license
Be an American citizen
Wear a helmet
Wear a reflective vest or bandolier* (a wide reflective belt worn diagonally across your body –the same requirement for motorcyclists). This is a 24/7 requirement.
Obey all Alabama state traffic laws while riding on RSA roads, including lighting during dusk, dawn, and low light weather conditions**
* Although the minimum requirement to wear a reflective bandolier or belt will satisfy gate guards, cyclists are well-advised to wear highly visible shirts and bright reflective vests, i.e., not the bare minimum, but the maximum in visibility.
** Alabama state code requires a front headlight and a rear red reflector and mentions that a rear light is also a good idea but that the rear red reflector is also required. Cyclists are well advised to use both red rear reflectors and bright red blinky lights to meet the required low light visibility requirements.
Both clarifications and pieces of advice indicated by asterisk above are very good guidance about riding anywhere in the Tennessee Valley, day or night, the brighter the better for clothes and lights, day or in low light conditions.
