In the following video of the country, you can see how to overtake a cyclist on the road to maintain the safety distance and avoid possible accidents.


These are some key points in usual situations on the roads

  • Even if the bikes occupy less space on the road, you have to overtake them as if it were a car
  • When you have to overtake a cyclist or group of cyclists, you have to reduce speed and leave at least the separation of a meter and a half. Keep in mind that the blow of air produced by a car can unbalance the cyclist and make it fall on the road.
  • You can overtake a cyclist even if there is a continuous line, provided there is no risk and you have sufficient visibility
  • When overtaking another vehicle, always look at the shoulder of the opposite direction to see if a cyclist is riding as it is forbidden to overtake in that situation. Cyclists for their part have to facilitate the maneuver of overtaking
