I have received a number of letters this week from residents concerned about adults riding their bikes on the footpath. It is illegal for adults to ride on the footpath, unless you are supervising a child under the age of 12. Children under 12 years of age can ride on a footpath.
Shared paths: Across NSW there are paths that can be used by both pedestrians and bicycle riders, such as the newly constructed shared cycleway along Wentworth Avenue. These will be clearly signposted. Always travel at a speed that promotes safety for you and the pedestrians you encounter.
