They're often called 'bike tracks', but it's important to remember that these paths are for there for all to share.
- Keep left. If you need to overtake slower traffic, look before you make a move.
- Pedestrians have right of way. If you're on a bike, slow down and give way to pedestrians.
- Use a bell or your voice to let other track users know you’re nearby.
- Don’t block the path. If you need to stop, move off the path.
- Keep dogs on your left and on a short lead.
