Bicycle Safety

Bicycles are vehicles and cyclists have the same rights and duties as motorists.

Follow the rules of the road:

-Stops at all stop signs and red lights

-cycle on the right side of the road

-ride on the road, not the sidewalk

-use proper lighting when riding at night -use proper hand signaling when turning and stopping -remember to wear a CSA certified helmet (it’s the law for cyclists under the age of 18)

Wait, there is more:

-Be predictable in traffic – ride in a straight line -ride at least one meter from the curb -give pedestrians the right of way -always shoulder check when turning -ride defensively
