Do you legally have to wear a cycle helmet?
There’s no law which compels cyclists of any age to wear a helmet. However, it’s obviously dangerous to cycle without one, and the Highway Code suggests all cyclists wear a safe and well-fitting helmet regardless of what the laws says.
Is it compulsory to wear a cycle helmet in the UK?
Is it compulsory to wear a helmet? There is no British law to compel cyclists, of any age, to wear helmets when cycling, even though the Highway Code suggests that cyclists should wear a cycle helmet “which conforms to current regulations, is the correct size and securely fastened.”
How much should I spend on a bike helmet?
For a few more dollars–the $50-$70 range, you get protection, with more style and comfort. The helmet may have an internal harness to fine tune fit, even if it’s a simple one.
How do I choose a bike helmet?
Check the Fit
- The front edge should be no more than 1 inch above your eyebrows.
- Push the helmet side to side and front to back: It should be snug enough that the motion wrinkles the skin at your temples.
- A ponytail can alter your fit, so make sure to test a helmet wearing the same hairstyle you ride with.
Are more expensive bike helmets safer?
The long answer: First and foremost, there is no difference in safety between the $30 helmet and the $200 helmet. In order for them to be legally sold as bicycle helmets, all must meet the same safety regulations. So basically, you’re paying for two things: looks and comfort.
Are full face bike helmets safer?
The biggest benefit when using a full–face helmet is the protection it provides. By wearing them, you’ll be guaranteed higher levels of protection than with open–face helmets. The hard shell will ensure your brain, chin, teeth, and face won’t suffer from major injuries if you fall.

Is cycling drunk illegal?
It is illegal to ride your bike under the influence of drink or drugs, and you would be guilty of this if you were unfit to ride to such an extent as you are incapable of having proper control of the bicycle. You would be committing an offence whether you were on a footpath or on the road.
Is cycling with headphones illegal?
It is not illegal to listen to music via ear phones whilst cycling on public roads. Listening to music may however distract you from what is going on around you and may also prevent you from being able to hear the approach of other vehicles and thus jeopardise your own safety.
Is cycling on the pavement illegal?
Is there legislation for pavement cycling? The simple answer to this is yes. However, the interpretation is clear – it’s not legal for a cyclist to ride their bike on the pavement. The Highway Code also states: “You must not cycle on a pavement.”
Can I push my bike on a footpath?
Did you know that you shouldn’t take your bicycle on a footpath? However, in law a bicycle is not considered to be a ‘usual’ accompaniment on a footpath. To push (or carry) a bicycle is, therefore, to commit a trespass against the holder of the land over which the path runs.
Is cycling without lights illegal?
It is illegal to cycle on a public road after dark without lights and reflectors.
Can a child ride a bike on the pavement?
Children cycling on the pavement is illegal, but there is no criminal liability for children under the age of 10, and it is tacitly accepted by everyone that the pavement is where younger children will ride.
