Sharing the Road (FFDL 37)



Bicycles are a type of vehicle—when you ride a bicycle on a Queensland road, you have rights and responsibilities like all other road users.

When you ride a bicycle, you must obey the general road rules the same as other motorists as well as the specific road rules for bicycle riders.

Riding a bicycle

When you ride a bicycle, you must:

  • have 1 leg on each side of the seat
  • face forwards
  • keep at least 1 hand on the handlebars.

Carrying people

You can carry another person if:

  • the bicycle is designed to carry more than 1 person and has a passenger seat
  • each person is wearing a helmet.

Signalling

You must use a hand signal when you turn right. To do this, extend your right arm out horizontally—at a right angle from the right side of the bicycle. Your hand should be open, with your palm facing forward.
