Follow the Highway Code – don’t jump red lights and don’t cycle on the pavement unless it’s a designated cycle path.

In wet weather watch your speed as surfaces may be slippery and it will take you longer to stop.

Consider wearing a helmet.

Keep your bike roadworthy.

Make sure motorists can see you.

Ride in a position where you can see and be seen.

Use lights and consider wearing bright or reflective clothing, especially in towns, at night and in bad weather.

Make eye contact with other road users, especially at junctions, then you know they’ve seen you.

Use your bell – not all pedestrians can see you.

Be aware of vehicles. Don’t assume a vehicle is going straight because it’s not signaling left or right. Ride patiently.
