Test your knowledge of the rules, regulations and responsibilities that govern cycling on British roads in the short quiz below, or visit our Cycling and the Law pages.

    “Whilst riding at night, bikes must be fitted with front and rear lights.”

    You have the answer to this as “true”.

    It isn’t. I can ride to my heart’s content on – say – singletrack (or even dedicated cycleways, lit or not) – without front and rear lights. It’s ONLY true on roads.
