Bike lanes

Cyclists are legitimate road users and many designated bike lanes occur along our regions roads. A number of 'watch for cyclists' signs have also been installed along popular cycle training and commuting routes to encourage motorists to look out for cyclists and to share the road safely.

When cycling, remember to wear a helmet, obey the road rules and use front and rear lights for night riding.

Always follow the road rules and be visible.  Use lights at night, have reflectors on your bike and wear light coloured clothing to increase visibility.
