1. Familiarise Yourself with Traffic Rules

Before embarking on your e-scooter adventure, take a moment to look at Valencia's traffic regulations. Observe traffic signals, adhere to speed limits, and use designated bike lanes whenever possible. Respecting the rules not only keeps you safe but also contributes to the overall harmony of the city's transportation system.

2. Choose the Right Path

Valencia boasts a network of bike lanes and paths ideal for e-scooter exploration. Opt for routes that prioritise safety, avoiding busy thoroughfares whenever you can. The Turia Park area, with its scenic paths, or the coastal Cabanyal district, offer splendid routes away from heavy traffic.

3. Wear Protective Gear

Safety first! Equip yourself with a helmet, which is not only a legal requirement but also handy if you fall off and land on your head. In BikeAlao, helmets come free when you rent an e-scooter.

4. Master E-Scooter Basics

Before setting off, familiarise yourself with the e-scooter's controls. Practice starting, stopping, and turning in a safe area to build confidence. Valencia's streets may be bustling, so feeling comfortable on your e-scooter is essential for a smooth and secure ride. 

5. Be Mindful of Pedestrians

Valencia's pedestrian-friendly zones are numerous, and respecting them is crucial. Slow down when passing through crowded areas, yield to pedestrians, and use your bell or horn to alert others of your presence. Being considerate fosters a positive relationship between e-scooter riders and pedestrians.

6. Stop Responsibly

When you reach your destination, ensure your e-scooter goes everywhere you go. It can be turned off and left with arm's length by your table if eating, can be taken into many shops and restaurants that you may want to visit, and can be left in several charging areas while you shop or eat, so you can collect it fully charged to continue on your journey.

By adhering to these guidelines, you can enjoy the thrill of riding an e-scooter in Valencia while contributing to the safety and harmony of the city's streets. Happy riding!
