    Cycling accident in Stoke-on-Trent

    Have you had a cycling accident in Stoke-on-Trent?

    With public transport fares ever increasing whilst wages across the board experience pay freezes or low incremental rises, cycling to work has never been so popular and with over 125 kilometres of cycle routes in and around Stoke on Trent, it is the ideal place to get on yer bike! Stoke on Trent was awarded ‘Cycling City’ status in 2008, so there has been a great deal of awareness and promotion of the benefits of two wheels over four wheels. Commuters have been vacating train and bus seats in their droves and taking to their saddles and donning bicycle clips in a bid to cut monthly outgoings and get a daily dose of exercise into the bargain. Sadly the increase in cyclists on the roads during peak commuting times has led to a direct correlation in the increase of cyclists sustaining injuries caused by collisions with other road users. Read on if you have had a cycling accident in Stoke-on-Trent.

    How to stay safe whilst cycling to work

    • Plan ahead
      Make sure that you keep to the cycle routes wherever possible. Choose your route wisely and carefully. It may be worth taking a slightly longer route that offers more shelter to the cyclist than a shorter but more exposed journey.
    • Light up
      Ensure that you always carry a spare set of lights and/or batteries with you when you are cycling. If you can’t be seen by other road users then the odds on having an accident diminish fast with every trip you make.
    • Fashion police
      Hi-vis clothing may set off the sirens of the fashion police but the brighter your outfit, the more visible you are to other users. Wearing a helmet may flatten your crowning glory but if you eschew a helmet you will be lucky to live to rue the day as head trauma injuries are one of the top injuries sustained by cyclists.
