However the Transport Agency is also encouraging more experienced cyclists to take advantage of the new resource to brush up on their knowledge of the road rules and safe cycling practices. The new code includes sections on:

Learning to cycle
Road rules
Signs
Tips for cycling defensively
How to do 'hook turns' and use roundabouts
Checking and maintaining your bike.
