World Bike Day

Today is Word Bike Day and Halifax Regional Police is encouraging everyone to do their part to safely share our roadways.


  • Keep an eye out for cyclists and ensure you allow for 1-meter clearance when passing them.
  • Only pass cyclists if it’s safe to do so.
  • Do a triple check for cyclists when turning. This check is especially important when turning right.
  • When parking on the street, use your mirrors and turn around to check for cyclists before opening your door.


  • Check your bike to make sure brakes, reflectors and lights are in working order.
  • Always wear a helmet.
  • Ride on the right side of the road, in the same direction as traffic.
  • Ride in single file.
  • Obey all road signs and traffic signals.
  • Signal your intentions before turning or stopping.
  • Be visible and stay alert for vehicles and other cyclists.
