Bicycle Riding Rules

We should understand that just like other motor vehicles, a bicycle has the same rights  of way while on the road. They are one of the exposed road users unlike drivers. The following are the simple guidelines

  • Some roads provides bicycle path, use them where available

Riding on a bicycle path

  • The rider must ensure that the handle bars are adjusted to the height suitable for him
  • As a bicyclist, you are under obligation to obey all the traffic rules and regulations
  • Bicycles are not to be seen on highways or expressway
  • Cycling too close to a moving vehicle should be avoided. This is to prevent unexpected happening incase of sudden braking of the vehicle
  • Riders must not hold unto another vehicle while moving on the road. Doing so is a dangerous adventure
