Bicycles

A bicycle is considered a vehicle and cyclists should follow the same NSW Road Rules as drivers of other vehicles. There are also Road Rules that only apply to cyclists, including:

  • cyclists should use a bicycle lane if one is available, unless there is a good reason not to (for example, if the bicycle lane is blocked)
  • at roundabouts with two or more lanes, cyclists should give way to other vehicles leaving the roundabout
  • cyclists can overtake to the left except where a car is turning left
  • cyclists should not ride across a road or crossing
  • cyclists should not ride on a road marked with a "No bicycles" sign or road marking
  • cyclists should not cause a traffic hazard by moving into the path of a driver or pedestrian
  • cyclists should not hold onto another vehicle that is moving.

Hint iconIf you want to know more about the NSW Road Rules, go to NSW Legislation.

If a bicycle is involved in an accident with a car, both the rider and the driver are required to stop and exchange details. Where a bicycle rider or driver has not stopped to exchange details after an accident, you should report the accident to the police, providing a description of the bicycle and the rider, or the car and the driver.

Not many bicycle riders are insured for the damage they cause to other peoples' cars or property, but you can still claim for your damage from the bicycle rider if you have an accident with them and they are at fault. For more information, see Owed money after a car accident?

Alert IconWhen opening a door or getting out of a car, drivers and passengers should keep a look out for cyclists. It is an offence to open a ​door or get out of the car and cause a hazard. This is an offence of 'strict liability', which means that the driver commits an offence even if they were not acting in a negligent way.
