People on bicycles are allowed to ride on the sidewalk except in certain areas downtown. This map details which streets riding your bike on the sidewalk is prohibited downtown. Riding on the sidewalk, while allowed in most of Denton, is not encouraged as it creates many conflict points with pedestrians.

Here is a map of current bike rack locations in the downtown area.
The City does not require new businesses or developments to provide bicycle racks. However, we have put together a map of bike racks that were reported by citizens. If a business you frequent does not have bike racks, talk to the owner/manager about getting one and direct them to our Bicycle Parking Guidelines.
If you are on a bicycle, you are required to ride with traffic as Texas Transportation Code considers bicycles vehicles. That means a person on their bike has the same rights and responsibilities as those in vehicles. The only exception is if a contra-flow bike lane is provided, allowing people on bicycles a travel lane that goes against traffic. If you are a pedestrian, and there is a sidewalk, you can walk either with or against traffic. If no sidewalk is present, then State law states that you must walk against traffic.
