Cycling Safety Tips

Follow our tips below to stay safe whilst cycling;

  • Protect yourself with a helmet, as it will reduce the risk of a head injury if you have an accident.
  • Be visible to other road users, wear bright or fluorescent clothing in daylight and reflective clothing at night.
  • Make your intentions clear to other road users. Show drivers what you plan to do in plenty of time, always look and signal before you start, stop or turn.
  • Don't weave in and out of traffic or change direction suddenly without signalling.
  • Give yourself space by not cycling too close to the kerb.
  • Pay attention to what is happening around you, and don't use a mobile phone or wear earphones.
