German cycling rules

In safe hands

Always use hand signals to communicate your intentions while riding your rental bike. One hand straight up means stopping, right hand to the side – turning right, left hand to the side … you get the drill.

Fall in line

Riding two abreast is forbidden on roads – always ride single file even in a bicycle lane. I know, that sounds so German!

You’ve only got 2 wheels

It is illegal for bicycles to be on the autobahn, so don’t be caught trying to race 120 Km/h traffic.

Stay sober or park your bike

Don’t even think about cycling under the influence of alcohol or drugs – you’ll face a hefty fine if you do, not to mention the risk of an accident. Also, well, we don’t want a smashed up rental bike 🙂
