Cycling is an enjoyable pastime which many people have found to be an excellent way of losing weight, exploring the countryside and as a means of cheap transport to and from their workplace. As cycling has increased in popularity, many local councils have chosen to invest money into cycle paths and cycle tracks which divert cyclists away from congested routes and highways. However, despite these attempts at improving the safety of cyclists, many thousands of people are still injured every year in cycling related accidents.
If you, or some one close to you, have been injured in a cycling related accident which was caused through no fault of your own within the last 3 years, then you may be legally entitled to pursue personal injury compensation with the injury claim specialists in North Lincolnshire, Accident Advice Helpline.

What are the causes of cycling related accidents?
Cyclists are amongst some of the most vulnerable road users. Their bikes afford them little protection should they be involved in a collision or incident with other road users, such as cars and heavy goods vehicles. The primary protective equipment which a cyclist wears is central to their safety, comfort, visibility and protection when they are out cycling.
Accidents may be caused by:
- Drivers failing to see cyclists
- Driving too close to cyclists
- Cyclists failing to fit and use their lights
- Drivers failing to check for cyclists when turning left
- Drivers failing to give way to cyclists
- Drivers who use cycle lanes to pull in and stop
- Drivers opening doors onto oncoming cyclists
- Drivers cutting up cyclists on roundabouts
- Cyclists not wearing cycle helmets, gloves and protective high visibility clothing
