Cycling is good for your health – both for yours and for traffic – and gives you more energy for working. To have this high spirit among team members, Allog International Transport is encouraging the use of this alternative means of locomotion.
To encourage the practice of sports, we are making bicycles available in the company for our employees to use on a daily basis. The initiative is part of the actions of World Bicycle Day celebrated today, April 19. The company already had a dressing room with a shower for changing clothes, parking with a covered garage for those who come by bike, and some other “treats” such as cycling jersey and items storage.
By encouraging the use of bicycles or walking by employees, we believe in more comprehensive benefits, such as a corporate image that demonstrates social and environmental responsibility.
Bicycles must occupy the bicycle lanes, cycle paths or roadway, so those who train on highways must occupy the road side (Art. 58 of the CTB). If you do not have these options, you should follow the edge of the track in the same direction as the other vehicles, never in the opposite direction.
The circulation of bicycles is prohibited in the exclusive bus lane. It is also prohibited to pedal on sidewalks or in areas exclusive for pedestrians, such as boardwalks.
According to article 255 of the Brazilian Highway Code, riding a bicycle where riding is not allowed is considered a medium infraction, with a penalty of a fine and administrative measure of claiming the bicycle.
The dismounted cyclist (disembarked) is considered a pedestrian, so if you need to move on a sidewalk or pedestrian strip, merely coming off the bicycle already puts you in that condition.
Motor vehicles should overtake the bicycle with a minimum side distance of 1.5 m (Art. 201 of the BHC).
