Cycling is a great way to get around, and delivers a tremendous workout for your heart, lungs, muscles and overall cardiovascular system. However, the roads can be incredibly hazardous for cyclists, and so you must pay the utmost care when cycling.
The most important thing for you is not whether or not you’re in right if you become involved in an accident, but much more importantly that you return home from your cycling trip safe, healthy and accident-free.
Avoiding Bike Accident Injuries
In the interests of keeping you safe, we have prepared some tips for accident-free cycling
Follow the Highway Code
Become familiar with and adhere to the Highway Code. Don’t jump lights or cycle on pavements, as in this way you may now become a hazard to pedestrians. Always have regard for the conditions, and understand that wet roads can become slippery roads. And of course, always wear your helmet.
Make sure that you can be seen.
Use lights and bright or reflective clothing, to allow other road users the maximum opportunity to be aware of your presence on the road. Signal clearly when turning, and use your bell when approaching pedestrians.
Understand the Road
Beware holding the inside lane when vehicles are turning left. Understand that while other road users may not necessarily be aware of your presence, you must be aware of theirs, and so anticipate their movements. Especially, beware cycling alongside large vehicles like buses or lorries – particularly at junctions.
