Bicycles

This page has information on what you can do if you have a car accident involving a cyclist.​

    Rules covering ​cyclists

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

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

    All drivers of a motor vehicle (including motorcyclists) must:

    • ​​leave at least one metre between the motor vehicle and a bicycle when passing a cyclist on a road with a speed limit of 60km/h and below
    • leave at least one and a half metres between the vehicle and a bicycle when passing a cyclist on a road with a speed limit above 60km/h.

    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 can report the accident to the police, providing a description of the bicycle and the rider, or the car and the driver. 

    Claiming against a cyclist

    Not many bicycle riders are insured for the damage they cause to other people's cars or property.

    You can still claim for your damage from the bicycle rider if you have an accident with them and they are at fault, but you should consider whether they are able to pay.
