Cycling is fun
Cycling is a great way to have fun and stay healthy, so why not do it more often? However, before riding your bike, there are a number of things you should know to help keep you safe!
Look after your bike
Make sure your bike is in tip-top shape before you go for a ride!
Read all about it!
There's lots more about cycle safety in our 'Tales of the Road, a Highway Code for Young Road Users' booklet!
When cycling be sure to...
Wear a cycle helmet
Always wear a helmet that's the right size for you and fitted correctly!
Be bright - be seen
Wear something bright or reflective to make sure everyone can see you coming!
Find the safest route
Plan your cycle journey with your parents, and do your best to stick to cycle paths and quieter roads. If the road looks busy, get off your bike and walk.
Put your lights on
Fit your bike with reflectors and good strong lights if you're riding in the dark.
Park with care
Park your bike with thought for other people, use a cycle stand and lock it to something secure!
Be careful near animals
Give them plenty of room as you cycle past, and don't scare them with your bell!
