Life On Two Wheels


The Cabildo of Lanzarote have launched a road safety campaign “Life on two wheels” to raise awareness of the vulnerability of cyclists.

Lanzarote attracts thousands of cyclists for training especially over the winter months and we have some big sporting triathlon events throughout the year.

Recommendations for drivers:

- When passing a cyclist or group of cyclists is essential to leave at least a space of 1.5 meters, which is the legal minimum distance. If there is insufficient space, wait to avoid taking unnecessary risks.

- When you are overtaking a cyclist or group of cyclists, go slowly. Passing a rider at high speed can cause the rider to become unbalanced due to the air turbulence generated by the vehicle passing.

- On less busy roads use the horn to warn the cyclist  you are in the vicinity, but do not do it when you are too close as it could panic the cyclist and cause them to fall or put them at risk.

- Be attentive to the manoeuvres of cyclists,  as it is vehicles that can perform manoeuvres with speed and agility. Precaution especially in an urban environment.

- Remember that a group of two or more riders can ride in parallel according to the Road Safety Act, so do not use your horn. Be patient and overtake the group when there is no risk.

- Indicate all manoeuvres with sufficient time to warn approaching cyclists and do not make sudden stops or turns.

- The law dictates that cyclists have priority over cars, so if you want to turn left or right, entering a junction or a roundabout or traffic circle, you have to wait for the cyclist to pass. In the case of a group of cyclists, when the first person of the group enters an intersection or a roundabout, you must wait to let them all pass.

- Remember that on roads with one lane in each direction, it is prohibited to overtake another vehicle if a cyclist is coming from the opposite direction.

- When parked, look in the rear view mirror before opening the car door, especially in streets and narrow roads, to see if a cyclist is approaching.

- Respect the 1.5 meters between your vehicle and cyclists. Remember that bicycles and their users are vulnerable on the road.

Recommendations for cyclists:

- It is mandatory to wear a helmet when cycling on urban roads, but it is also highly recommended to use in urban areas. Use of an approved helmet reduces the risk of severe head injuries in a crash. Read more »
