Cycling Safety

Leave 1 Metre – it’s the LAW

The Province of Ontario recently passed a law that motorists must leave at least 1 metre when passing a cyclist. When passing a cyclist or group of cyclists be sure the road is clear of approaching traffic before merging, use your turn signal and leave at least one metre between your self and the cyclist.

Safe Cycling Techniques

Cyclists are considered vehicles under the Highway Traffic Act. When cycling on rural side roads and through town please remember to wear bright colours, use hand signals, stop at stop signs and walk on sidewalks.

Proper Group Riding

When riding in groups on rural roads remember to stay tight and to the right, ride in groups of 10 or less and go single file on narrow roads, blind spots or hills so cars can safely pass.

How to Safely Pass a Cyclist

Did you know that it is now the law to leave at least 1 metre of space between your vehicle and a cyclist when passing? It’s true.

I highly recommend Pedal Pushers for anyone wanting to improve their cycling skills. I took a road clinic with Noelle in order to prepare myself for the Centurion road race at Blue Mountain. I learned several skills, from cycling cadence, ascending and descending hills to proper nutrition and hydration. Noelle helped me devise a training  and race strategy which helped my cycling performance in the C50. I am looking forward to taking another clinic in the near future!!!!”

There is no way I could have completed this “ride to conquer cancer”(and I got time) without your training session. Thanks again.
