EASY RIDE: Wednesday September 5th, 6:30 pm

This route starts and finishes at the park on Carlisle. Be sure to have appropriate lights on the fronts and backs of your bikes. The sun officially sets at 7:42pm and the law in Ontario requires lights on bikes beginning 30 minutes before sunset. That means that at 7:12pm the lights should be going on. After all this rain, surely tomorrow night will be  sunny again!

Cycling and the Law
As cyclists we are governed by the Highway Traffic Act and subject to fines for non-compliance. Upon researching what the fine was for not having a light, it was interesting to note all the different cycling infractions and their associated fines. For instance, did you know that it’s an $85 penalty for not carrying identification? The same applies to not having a bell. Passing a school bus with lights flashing: $400.

  1. Thanks for posting the information about Bicycles & The Law Anita. We should all be aware and protect ourselves, especially with regards to lights at this time of year.

  2. I can’t commit yet to whether or not I will be there tonight…..so if I’m not, don’t wait around for me. Head out and enjoy your ride!
