Cycling is convenient, healthy and sustainable alternative to driving to campus. It is virtually cost-free and allows much closer access to your destination than campus car parks. Cycling to the University of Limerick can be a fun, practical and productive way of making exercise a regular part of your life. The following information is intended as a commuting resource for students, faculty, staff and visitors.
- Always wear a helmet when cycling.
- Cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motor vehicles. Obey traffic rules and signs.
- Keep your bike in good working order. Check your tires, chain and brakes regularly.
- Ride with traffic on the left side of the road (not against traffic).
- For night riding, equip your bike with a headlight, taillight and reflectors.
- Ride as far to the left as is practical but beware of debris and uneven surfaces.
- Be predictable. Ride in a straight line. Do not weave in and out of parked cars.
- Be aware of all vehicles around you whether moving or parked. Look for cars performing sudden lane changes and doors opening from parked cars.
- Ride single file when traveling in groups.
