Obey all traffic laws and regulations. This means riding on the right side of the road, following the speed limit, and stopping at red lights and stop signs.
Ride safely and predictably. Avoid weaving in and out of traffic, and signal your turns and stops well in advance. You must sit on the bicycle saddle, with both your feet on the pedals; and hold the handlebar with both hands, or with one hand if you are using the other to signal turning to the right or left and dismount when crossing at all pedestrian crossings.
Be aware of your surroundings. Do not use dual headsets or strobe lights while riding the bicycle, watch out for cars, pedestrians, and other cyclists, maintain sufficient safety distance, and be prepared to react to changing conditions.
Wear a helmet and other protective and high-visibility gear. This will help to protect you in the event of a crash, and check if the gears, brakes, and tires are in working condition before you ride the bicycle.
Do not carry passengers, tow other objects, or cling to any moving vehicle or trailer while riding the bicycle. This can make it difficult to control your bicycle and could lead to an accident.
Use parking spaces designated for bicycles, if available, and do not park the bicycle in a manner that obstructs the movement of vehicles or pedestrians.
Comply with the instructions of the information signs installed on roads and cycle tracks
Report incidents immediately if they happen when hitting bicycles, vehicles, pedestrians, or stationary objects.
Use bicycle lanes and paths whenever possible. This is the safest way to ride, and it helps to reduce traffic congestion.
Be careful especially when riding at night or in bad weather. Make sure you have good visibility, and be extra cautious around other vehicles.
