Stay safe while on the road
It’s important to stay safe while riding your bicycle on the road - whether you’re riding with Uber, another delivery provider or just casually.
Some quick tips to remember (from VicRoads, more details here):
Wear a helmet;
Avoid urban freeways or roads where signs prohibit bicycles (such as CityLink tunnels or the Westgate bridge);
Don’t ride on the footpath (unless a valid exception applies);
While riding at night you must have:
White light (flash or steady) on the front; and
Red light (flashing or steady) on the back; and
Red reflector on the back; and
If possible wear reflective clothing
Bicycles are expected to obey the same road rules as drivers, in addition to abiding by bicycle-specific rules. The result of not following these rules can be fines or even demerit points.
