Pledge to be Pedestrian First Cyclist

Cyclists on PCN/Pavement should not be defined by the few black sheep who are reckless, inconsiderate and the cause of some accidents. The majority of the cyclist are ALSO pedestrians and we care deeply about the safety of all users, especially the vulnerable young and elderly. We want to express our commitment to Pedestrian Safety and gratitude for sharing the PCN/Pavement with us. We are responsible, considerate, caring and safety conscious cyclists who will put the Pedestrian Safety First. We want to show that we can use positive role models, social and peer pressure to encourage the right mind set and behaviour to promote safety for all, without additional government intervention, regulation, bicycle licensing or penalties.  

Cyclists, if you are like the most of us, willing to show our commitment, take 3 Points Pedestrian First Cyclist Pledge:

  1. I am a Pedestrian First Cyclist, always putting their safety first, especially for the vulnerable children & elderly.
  2. I am always mindful of potential risk so that I can take early defensive actions, including slowing down, to unexpected situations.
  3. I have the patience & skill to ride slowly behind pedestrian at walking speed, and willingness to dismount, if necessary, for safety.

Sign the pledge here.

I believe with more cyclists having the above mindset and attitude, accidents will be reduced and safety on PCN/Pavement will be improved. We will also have a more harmonious sharing of the pathways. Do help to spread the word and strongly encourage your safety conscious fellow cyclists to do the Pledge. The more cyclists Pledge, the more credible is our commitment to the pedestrians.

Pedestrians, if you like to see more responsible, considerate, caring and safety conscious cyclist who puts pedestrians first, please like the Facebook page and share to all your friends and groups.

Please encourage your cycling friends to Pledge and commit to it.
