What are cycle lanes?
Cycle tracks are provided for bicycle use only and have a white kerb line (which may be broken) separating them from the road.
When using a cycle lane, keep within the lane when practicable.
When leaving a cycle lane check before pulling out that it is safe to do so and signal your intention clearly to other road users.
Use of cycle lanes is not compulsory and will depend on your experience and skills, but they can make your journey safer.
