Riding Skills & Tips

Hand Signals

Learn the following hand signals to communicate your intentions with others before turns and lane changes:


The Fundamentals*


  • Be alert.
  • Be aware of other vehicles and pedestrians.
  • Use hand signals.
  • Use horns.
  • Use lights in dark conditions.
  • Ride on the right side of the road.
  • Ride with head up.
  • Check municipal bylaws before group riding.
  • Ride single file.


  • Ride against traffic.
  • Wear headphones.
  • Carry more people than bike was designed for.
  • Multi-task while riding.
  • Cycle with one hand, except when making hand signals.
  • Never go on a one-way street the wrong way.

*The above fundamentals are tips only. For information on your province’s cycling legislation please contact or visit your local CAA Club.

Hazards on the Road

  • When possible, ride on even surfaces. Riding on rough surfaces is dangerous and can cause you to lose your balance and fall.
  • Avoid riding across sharp or unknown objects that may cause loss of balance or a flat tire.
  • On unknown or slippery surfaces, slow down and keep your bike as upright as possible. Loss of traction can cause you to lose control of your bike.

Hazardous Weather

  • Slow down in wet weather conditions and be aware that rain can affect your ability to see and be seen.
  • Prepare to stop far in advance in rainy weather.
  • In wet weather conditions, you have less traction while turning a corner, so slow down and take corners with little leaning.
