Announcing our exciting new initiative for cyclists

A recent VicRoads survey showed that a large percentage of Victoria’s bike riders weren’t up to speed on the road rules. So, to help improve road safety for bike riders, we’re launching a new online and print publication in November called Bikes, the law and you.

Produced in consultation with VicRoads, cycling networks and councils, it is the definitive guide on the road rules for bike riders in Victoria.

We're taking bulk orders for this free publication now
