Canal’s path users
Remember that you are sharing the path with hundreds of cyclists, in-line skaters, walkers and runners. By adopting responsible behaviour, you minimize the risk of an accident.
Before you leave
- Inspect your bicycle regularly, check the condition of the brakes and tires, and ensure that it is equipped with the mandatory visibility equipment. A bicycle in good condition will allow you to travel efficiently and safely.
- If you ride in the dark, think about equipping your bicycle with headlights: they will light up the path and help other users see you clearly.
- Wear a helmet and any other safety equipment appropriate for your activity.
- Power-assisted bicycles or electric bicycles equipped with a running board, an open frame or a flat floor, commonly referred to as electric scooter, are prohibited on the path.
