San Francisco - Legal rides
I have just moved to the SF bay area and commute to SF city each day on the Caltrain.
From the Train to work its a 25/30 min walk in the heat.
In the city:
Can I ride the OneWheel on the roads? Legally
On Bike Lanes only?
Can I ride on the pavement (Sidewalk)?
I'll be wearing a helmet.. but is that a legal requirement?
Out in the bay area can I ride in any park? Trail?
Thanks so much for link!
This sums it up:
A person shall not operate an electrically motorized board upon a highway, bikeway, or any other public bicycle path, sidewalk, or trail, unless that person is wearing a properly fitted and fastened bicycle helmet that meets the standards described in Section 21212.
I believe in most areas of California, the OneWheel's dimensions when ridden and in Standard mode qualifies it as a "pedestrian vehicle" which means it's able to be used anywhere a pedestrian would walk. Sadly, I'm on mobile at the moment and can't cite my source.
