Cycling

What is the law?

As a cyclist, you must:

  • Obey all road markings, traffic signs and traffic signals.
  • Not carry any additional passengers on the bicycle unless it has been adapted to do so, such as tandem bicycles or child seats.
  • Not ride your bicycle in a way considered to be inconsiderate or careless.
  • Not ride a bicycle when you are unfit to control it, through the consumption of alcohol or drugs. It is also an offence to be in charge of a bicycle when drunk.
