    Cycling accidents are more common in urban areas of the country than in rural locations, due to the increased traffic congestion and volume of vehicles competing for limited road space. Unfortunately, cyclists can often be the victims of devastating injuries, caused by being hit by more robust vehicles such as heavy goods lorries and cars.

    Why are cyclists more vulnerable than others on the roads?

    1. The design of a bike is such that it is constructed of lightweight materials to ensure the speed and aerodynamics of the ride, not for the impact of another vehicle colliding with it.
    2. Bikes aren’t fitted with impact protection, air bags or safety belts to cushion the effects of a collision.
    3. In addition, many cyclists wear streamlined lycra bodysuits to reduce friction and resistance. However, these outfits aren’t designed for protecting the torso and limbs from collision with other road users or the road surface.
    4. Many lycra based clothes aren’t made to be highly visible to other road users and requires a tabard or high visibility band to be worn over the top which many cyclists dislike.

    Are you safe on your bike?

    Cyclists are at increased risk of being involved in a collision at junctions and roundabouts. This is because other road users need to change lanes and road positioning to ensure that they are in the correct lane. Sudden changes in lanes requires both the cyclist and drivers to check all mirrors, signal and manoeuvre accordingly and they may fail to notice a cyclist.

    Early morning cycle rides to work and evening rides home are peak times for a cyclist to be struck by other road users. Lights are particularly important in poor daylight and poor weather conditions. They allow you to be seen before you are approached and enable you to see road markings clearly ahead.

    Taxis and buses need space to pull out and cyclists are often the victims of collisions involving vehicles such as these. Cycle lanes mean that other road users should give adequate space for cyclists on the road.
