A Friendly Reminder to Edmonton Cyclists
There are rules for cyclists for a reason! You don’t get to pick and choose which you obey because it makes your life easier, it puts you and those around you in danger. Follow the law or it’s only YOUR fault if you get hurt.
Cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motor vehicles and must obey all rules of the road. They’re allowed on all roads as well as shared-use pathways, bike lanes and bike routes. Cyclists must ride as close to the curb as is safe and only ride in single file except when passing another vehicle.
This includes WALKING your bike across intersections if using shared sidewalks (when the walk signal is on), stopping at stop signs and red lights if on the road. If you can’t obey the laws walk or take the bus!
