    What is the Cyclists’ Defence Fund?

    Have you heard of the Cyclists’ Defence Fund? It was originally created in 2001 and its aim is to raise awareness of where the law stands in relation to cycling. The idea is to ensure everyone knows how to cycle safely and to reduce the number of accidents that occur involving cyclists.

    The main aim is really to educate people on what constitutes safe cycling and to ensure that all cyclists know how the law relates to them. Every cyclist could benefit from finding out more about the law in this sense and about what they are and are not entitled to do.

    The Cyclists’ Defence Fund also supports cyclists who have on occasion been prosecuted for certain ‘offences’. As their website shows they have sometimes been able to get cases stopped or withdrawn as a result of their hard work in supporting cyclists’ and their rights within the law. Their website reveals some of the cases they have been successful in supporting and they also provide plenty more information with regard to how the organisation is run. There is lots of useful advice regarding cycling as well.

    Could the Cyclists’ Defence Fund be helpful for you?

    Certainly – it is well worth checking out their website to find out more about them and what they do. Sometimes it is difficult to know where cyclists stand in terms of the law, particularly if you have been given a Fixed Penalty Notice or you have been in an accident. Their website provides useful advice and support and they continually fight to make sure cyclists are recognised in the law and as road users. You can also choose to support the fund if you wish – again, check their site for more details.
