Good Cycle Guide

At Pedal Power we believe in safe and respectful cycling. Here is how we can make cycling fun, safe and enjoyable for all

Sharing is Caring

Whether sharing a road or a path, thinking about other users is important. Avoiding conflict and ensuring safety is our primary concern at Pedal Power and so we ask all to follow our Good Cycling Guide

DING DING

Letting people know you are approaching is important. Use your bell before you reach people, giving them time to react. If they don't move wait for a safe time to pass. Maybe they didn't hear you or are unable to move out of the way. So be patient and take your time.

Up and Over

Bridges can be points of conflict. If you can dismount when going over or try slowing down and giving way if possible to pedestrians

Passing by

When passing people leave plenty of room and think about how fast you are going, a bike speeding by can be a shock.

Keeping left

Keeping to the left allows for people to pass you on the other side easily. In shared spaces without markings keeping to one side can help avoid issues.

Be Kind

Not everyone is an olympian.  Try not to judge other cyclists. Be patient passing slower cyclists and pedestrians. You will still get to where you want to go.

Protect it, don't lose it.

You only get one brain, and while they are not complusory to ride with us, helmets save lives.

Ride sensibly, Wheelies might look cool but facial injuries don't.  

Don't be hasty

Many areas have speed limits even for bikes! So check your speed and think about slowing down, especially in shared spaces.

Some rules are meant to be followed

When on the road cyclists have to comply with the high way code, stopping at red lights, complying with all signs and following the same rules as cars. This is for your safety as well as other road users.
