Children under 12 years and older riders accompanying them may ride bikes on the footpath unless there are signs that specifically prohibit cycling.
On shared paths and footpaths bicycle riders should always keep to the left.
Cyclists should travel at a speed that promotes safety for them and any pedestrians on the path.
Cyclists should use their bell to let people know when they are approaching and be careful around young children, dogs and older pedestrians.
