Riding safety and courteously
Speed limits apply to cyclists! A 10 km/h speed limit applies to all vehicles travelling within City of Stirling parks - including bicycles! 10k m/h is about double walking speed.
Ride safely and courteously. When riding on shared paths, please behave courteously towards pedestrians and other path users:
- Give way to pedestrians at all times
- Keep left unless overtaking
- Ring your bell well in advance of reaching a pedestrian to let them know you are behind them - don’t wait until you are close or you will startle them
- Watch out for dogs - they can be erratic.
A range of brochures which discuss safety and courtesy while riding can be picked up from the City's administration centre, or viewed online using the links on the right.
