  • All cyclists are required by law to wear an approved bicycle helmet. The Police will fine cyclists who ride without an approved helmet.
  • Cyclists can ride in bus, transit and bicycle lanes.
  • In Queensland cyclists can ride on footpaths (unless prohibited by a sign), but must keep left and give way to pedestrians.
  • Cyclists can ride two abreast, but must remain within 1.5m of each other.
  • While riding on roads, cyclists are required to use bicycle lanes where provided unless impractical to do so.
  • Obey all traffic lights. Cyclists can ride on the shoulder or traffic lane.
  • Cyclists can overtake other vehicles on the left unless they are signalling and turning left.
  • Cyclists must dismount and walk across pedestrian crossings and signed crossings.
  • Cyclists can turn right from either the right or left hand lane of a multi-lane roundabout as they are changing lanes.
  • Cyclists can make hook turns at an intersection.
