You must respect the highway code. If you’re caught breaking any important rules of the highway code, you can be fined.
Always take particular care when cycling along roads shared with motorized traffic, especially at crossroads and junctions and on bridges. When cycling along greenways, remember to give priority to pedestrians and signal your passing in good time.
It is compulsory to have properly functioning lights on your bike. If you’re cycling at night at all, or in the dark, we strongly recommend that you wear a reflective jacket as well as using your lights.
In France, it is not compulsory to wear a cycle helmet when cycling, but we strongly recommend that you do so.
Remember that you are responsible for your own safety and that you are responsible for any accident that might happen to you or to a third party if you break the rules of the highway code, don’t take into account traffic conditions or ignore dangers that you might be expected to encounter in natural surroundings.
Note that you must take out civil liability insurance.
