The following cycling tips will help make your cycling safe and enjoyable.
Ensure your bicycle is in good working order.
Wear a bicycle helmet which is CSA approved. Ensure you are highly visible on the road.
Consider helmet, clothing, footwear, front and rear lighting.
Know and follow the rules of the road. Ride on the right side of the road. Do not ride on the sidewalk. Pass on the left and ring the bell before passing pedestrians, those using mobility devices and other cyclists, or shout out ‘on the left’ to let the person know you’re passing.
Ride in a predictable manner. Avoid sudden stops or turns.
Ride at a safe distance from parked cars to avoid car door collisions.
Use hand signals to communicate your intentions to other road users.
Happy and safe cycling!
