A Merry Christmas from us!

December 19th, 2016

 

A Merry Christmas to all our cycling friends, remember to keep safe with the following tips

LIGHTS: it is illegal to ride a bike in the dark without
lights and reflectors so make sure you have good lights fitted where they can be
seen.

BE SEEN: reflective strips on clothing work by reflecting
back any light that fall on them and is an effective way of being more
visible.

POSITIONING: by cycling at least an arms distance from the
kerb makes you more visible and ensures traffic overtakes you considerately or
waits until it is safe to do so. Remember that it is not easy to make eye
contact with a driver when it is dark so don’t assume they have seen you.

Happy New Year to you all!
