Riding Tips

  • Keep to the left. We drive on the left side of the road in Bermuda. It takes time to get used to, so please remember, keep to the left.
  • Wear the helmet provided and keep it securely fastened when riding. It's smart and it's the law.
  • The maximum speed limit throughout Bermuda is 35 kph or about 22 mph. In the Town of St. George it is reduced to 25 kph.
  • Please take corners and bends slowly and carefully. The speed limit is strictly enforced and fines for violations are severe. So, slow down and enjoy Bermuda.
  • Let the engine warm up for about 1 minute before starting off.
  • For faster response when braking, ride with your fingers of your left hand resting on the rear brake lever.
  • Park only where it is legal to do so.
  • It is a smart idea to wear a jacket and shoes when riding. And, bright clothing makes it easy for other drivers to see you.
  • Fasten your belongings securely in the cycle's basket.
  • The yellow centre line on the road is a warning that it is dangerous to pass or illegal to park.
  • Do not touch the muffler once the engine has been run. It becomes very hot.
  • Lock your cycle, it is not insured against theft. If your cycle is stolen, call us at Oleander and the police immediately.
  • Slow down and use extra care when riding on wet or sandy surfaces. Many corners, hills and entrances are blind and require extra caution.
