    What are the rules for cycling within parks?


    Rules for cycling within parks can vary from one park to the next. Some parks, for example, do not permit cycling at all. Others set aside specific cycling tracks, while others permit cycling on paths shared with other park users. Whatever the specific rules may be, there are some basic rules that apply everywhere.

    Basic rules for cycling within parks

    In essence, these basic rules require people cycling within parks to:

    • Behave in a responsible manner that does not endanger other park users, for example, cycling at reasonable speeds, avoiding collisions with pedestrians, only cycling within parks or areas of parks where it is permitted to do so
    • Not cycling while under the influence of alcohol

    These rules are there to prevent cycling accidents, so it is imperative that they are adhered to.

    Park rules in general

    Most areas have rules for use of park facilities not just for cyclists, but for all users. The reason for this is that the authorities or organisations responsible for such parks and the facilities provided therein have a legal duty of care towards visitors.

    This means they must do everything within their power to prevent park accidents including cycling-related accidents, slips, trips and fallsinjuries by playground equipment, and so on.

    When park visits go bad

    If you had the misfortune to be injured in a park through no fault of your own, be it by a slip, trip or fall, an accident involving a cyclist or an injury by defective playground equipment, you could be eligible to claim compensation.

    When to claim

    Claims for compensation following trips, slips or falls or any other kind of accident in the park must be brought into action within three years of the date the personal injury was sustained. In cases where children were injured in the park, claims must be initiated within three years of the child’s 18th birthday at the latest.
