California Bicycle Law of the Day: CVC 21205 (Carrying items)

While we don’t see this one violated that often, it does happen. California Vehicle Code section 21205 states, “No person operating a bicycle shall carry any package, bundle or article which prevents the operator from keeping at least one hand upon the handlebars.”

In plain english, this means that if you are riding a bicycle, it is okay to carry something in your arms or in your hand, so long as you are still able to maintain one hand holding onto the handlebars.
