Cycling



Cyclists must obey all road rules and signs, and your bicycle must have working brakes and a bell. If you ride a bike, you and any passenger must wear a helmet. When riding at night, your bike must have front and rear lights. Always lock your bicycle when you leave it.

Your local area or city may have special arrangements in place to encourage cycling, such as designated bicycle paths (on or off the road), or storage areas for bicycles which link cyclists to public transport.

You should ride in the bicycle lane if there is one available, as this is safer, and some states and territories require this. If there is no bicycle lane, you should ride as close to the left side of the road as is safe. Generally, no more than two bike riders should be alongside each other.
