iPods are out in a new Code of Conduct for Victorian cyclists. Victoria Police and cyci.ng bodies launched the code today which tells cyclists not to use any portable audio devices. “You need to be aware of your total environment and be able hear what’s aaround you when riding. This is even more critical in a group ride,’l the code states. cyclists must also ”be predictable” and avoid sudden changes in direction or behaviour. The mandate designed particularly for riders in a group says cyclists should maintain a steady pace, communicate with other cyclists by yelling ”stopping” or ”slowing” and not weave in and out of traffic. the code comes after an elderly man was struck by a bike rider and died last year.”
