On the road
Cycle lanes are marked out by white lines along the road. White
cycle logos are painted within these lanes. There are two
Advisory cycle lanes - marked out by a broken white line.
They warn drivers that cyclists may be present.
Mandatory cycle lanes - these are marked out by a solid white
line. Motor traffic is not allowed on mandatory cycle lanes but, be
careful - drivers could break this rule!
Some of these lanes are surfaced in a different colour to make
them stand out.
Cyclists are allowed to travel along bus lanes if there is a
bicycle symbol on the bus lane sign.
Off the road
Cycle paths are often shared with pedestrians. Take extra care
when approaching or overtaking pedestrians, particularly children,
the elderly, or the disabled. Use your bell to warn them of your
presence and always show them consideration and courtesy.
If the lane has a white line separating the cycle track from the
path, make sure that you keep to the correct side.
