Cycling Safety

Cycling is a great way of getting around. It's fun, keeps you fit, and is environmentally friendly. But it's also important to stay safe, so as well as getting the right safety gear and making sure your bike's ready for the road, it's best to get some proper training.

Learn the Highway Code - it's not just for cars! Signs and traffic lights apply to cyclists' bikes as well as other vehicles, and you have to stay off pavements and paths unless signs specifically say you're allowed.
