STATE BICYCLE MAP AVAILABLE: Officials with the state Department of Transportation say copies of the 2019-20 Iowa Transportation Map for Bicyclists now are available at DOT driver’s license service centers, county treasurer’s offices, Iowa’s welcome centers and state rest areas.

The publication can be viewed and downloaded from and has been updated to show new 4-foot, paved shoulders and recreational trails completed since the previous version was published.

The map highlights bike-friendly routes throughout Iowa by identifying bike trails and traffic levels on all paved roads. The map also includes insets of Iowa’s 16 largest cities.

DOT officials say a person riding on a public road has all the rights and is required to know and obey all traffic laws and rules of the road, applicable to the driver of a motor vehicle. To assist bicycles in understanding their rights and responsibilities, a section of the map is dedicated to highlighting rules of the road for bicyclists. Bicyclists are urged to always wear helmets, use lights at night and watch out for road hazards including parallel-slat sewer grates, gravel, sand and debris.
