Bicycles and mopeds that cannot keep up with other traffic are expected to ride one meter from the curb or parked cars, or as close as practicable to the right hand edge of the road when there is no curb keep to the right of the lane;. However, they can use any part of the lane if necessary for safety, such as to:
- avoid obstacles, debris, potholes and sewer grates;
- cross railway or streetcar tracks at a 90° angle; and
- discourage passing where the lane is too narrow to be shared safely.
Cyclists are not required to ride close to the right edge of the road when they are travelling at or faster than the normal speed of traffic at that time and place, or when they are getting in position to turn left or turning left. (Cyclists are permitted to make a left turn from a left turn lane, where one is available.)
When passing a cyclist, allow at least one metre between your car and the cyclist.
Whenever possible, you should change lanes to pass. When turning right, signal and check your mirrors and the blind spot to your right to make sure you do not cut off a cyclist. When parked on the side of the street, look behind you and check your mirrors and blinds spots for a passing cyclist before opening a door.
