Basic Safety

Here are four basic bicycling tips

Maintain control

The following are things you can do to maintain control of your bicycle, even in an emergency:

  • Ensure your bicycle is the right size and properly adjusted to fit you.
  • A properly-fitted bicycle is more comfortable and easier to control.
  • In Rental Bikes Mallorca can help you choose the correct size bicycle.
  • Ensure your bicycle is in good working order by inspecting it regularly.

Protect Yourself

Properly-fitted helmets provide protection from a potentially life-threatening head injury. By law, in Mallorca bicycle riders under 18 years old must wear a bicycle helmet while riding on a public road.

Wear your helmet per manufacturer directions.

Be Visible and Alert

Even if you obey all traffic laws, there is always a risk of a collision.

  • Be prepared to stop for vehicles waiting at stop signs, in driveways, or parking spaces.
  • Be prepared to take evasive action relating to vehicles that have just passed you and may turn right.
  • Use hand signals before making turns or changing lanes to warn traffic around you.
  • You have to be very careful with pedestrians. Remember that if you travel by bicycle lane in a coastal area, pedestrians may be on vacation and are excessively relaxed and do not respect the bicycle lane.

Ride in a Safe Lane Position

Ride in the same direction as traffic so you are more visible to drivers entering roads or changing lanes in the following scenarios:

  • Passing a vehicle or another bicycle.
  • Preparing to make a left turn at an intersection.
  • When a lane is too narrow for a bicycle.
  • When approaching a right turn.
  • If the road is one-way with two or more lanes.
