The Town Hall of Logroño has decided to enforce the existing regulations part and fined 200 euros to bicycles travelling in sidewalks. Is an amount high if is compares with the 60 that is pay by them infringements mild, as Park on the sidewalk, in double row or in line yellow, bad habits that complicate much the traffic and them travels pedestrian. Although it makes sense that enforced the rule, desirable would be to enforce all alike.
Since the City Council want to bikes to circulate on the road, it is convenient to remind cyclists and drivers can live safely and avoid the most common mistakes. Had State even better that the own City Council reported this before put is to fine, but is what there is.
Have spoken previously of why is preferable use it booted and in many others media can find guides to prevent them accidents more usual (as it of in bike by Madrid) or the of standards of traffic for cyclists (of Ecomobility).
Use the center of the lane
A regular cycling accident in town is receive a slammed door of a parked car: drivers and passengers sometimes don’t look at before opening. It is also frequent that cars come out without looking for a parking space, or pedestrians to cross without looking, thinking that, passports because bikes don’t make noise.
To avoid these accidents, bicycle should circulate through the center of the lane, avoid sticking to the right edge. In this way wins space and time of reaction in the event of unforeseen. Sometimes them drivers are angry and think that them bikes trying to pimp them or something similar, but not: is is of a measure of self-protection. In addition, this invites motorists to respect the safety distance beyond the rider.
On the other hand, when drivers go to the rider, should be respect your lane and pass to the next, as if any other vehicle front load. If you go too close you can pull a Bicyclist to the ground. The continuous line can stepped on and invade the opposite direction whenever there is visibility and avoid creating a hazardous situation.
Usually the cyclist must use the right lane if there is more than one lane in the street, except when going to turn left.
In the roundabouts, used the lane outside
In the roundabouts it more advisable is using the rail from outside. Them drivers should know that a vehicle any circulating by the rail outside has priority to follow circulating by the roundabout, that not is can leave a roundabout from the rail inside, and therefore should give the step to them vehicles of the rail of outside.
Lights so you see
The afternoon and until dawn, we must take the headlight, rear light and reflecting back. Not is is of see: is for you to see. The fine by not carrying them is of 60 euros, if you served of stimulus: a game of lights costs much less.
Watch the bike to
It is necessary to have all the elements of the bike, especially brakes, chain and lights. A revision to the year do not do damage. Some brakes that do not work or a chain that is exit suddenly can play you a bad last.
If in doubt, stop
Drivers are usually reasonable and respected riders. But if doubts if going to yield the right of way, or detect an absent-minded driver, for. Bike long time is gained by not having to Park, so you can afford to lose a few seconds. Not there is haste.
Plan your routes
There are some routes with heavy traffic or slopes (Duques de Najera, C / Norte, Avenida de la Paz) which is better to avoid. City Hall should calm them or raised lanes, but while doing so, looking for alternative routes, quieter, as C / Huesca, barrier, the Parque del Ebro, Ruavieja or Duchess of la Victoria.

Be predictable and alerts
In bike, circulates in line straight, without give lurches. If you are going to change direction, it says extending the arm toward the side to which you are going to turn. And if you drive, put the indicators, not expending battery. The offence by not using turn signals is also serious and in theory are 200 euros fine, but do you know of anyone who have been fined for this?
Traffic lights and preferences of step
This is so obvious that hurts: it is necessary to respect traffic lights and pass preferences, and is especially important in the traffic lights regulating intersections. At some traffic lights that only they let pedestrians (Gran Vía, Chile) the risk is lower in the event of infringement, and in France, Germany, Belgium or United States there are more relaxed for cyclists, rules but while City Hall does not check these possibilities, is better to follow the rules and stop in the red.
In them traffic lights in red is can exceed to them other vehicles detained and place is in first row, but there are that do it with caution, especially when has trucks, vans or buses.
Watch out for trucks, vans and buses
Those vehicles heavy tend to have points blind to the sides. Also require much space to turn, and invade them Rails contiguous in some maneuvers. When has that stop is near a bus or truck, there are that make it always behind, or in front of this, but never to the side. Thus avoid us coil by not seeing us.
Look to the eyes of the people
A good mode of ensure you of that the drivers you have seen is look at them to them eyes. If set contact visual to the stop you in a traffic light or intersection, aid that you have present to the exit.
