    How to ride a bike safely

    Riding a bike is good for your physical fitness and the environment, which is why it is one of the best ways of getting around if you live close enough to work to commute in this way. But before you choose to cycle in to work each day you will first need to know how to be completely safe on a bike on the road. Riding a bike in a park or other pedestrianised zone is very different from being on a main road, even if you are in a cycle lane, and you will need to learn to take the right precautions to keep yourself safe.

    Check your bike

    Before you head out on any journey, perform a short but thorough check of your bike to make sure that it is in good working order. You will want to check:

    • Tyres to make sure that they are solid with no punctures, and full of air
    • Chain to ensure that it is not tangled or full of grime
    • Saddle to make sure that it is firmly fixed on the bike and not moving around
    • Brakes to make sure that they are not sticking or slow to stop the wheels

    Wear the right clothes

    Wear bright colours to make yourself more visible to other vehicles. You will also want to wear comfortable shoes which are firmly on, and don’t have any laces flapping which could get caught in the spokes or chain.

    Know the rules

    Learn the rules of the road and stick to them just as you would if you were in charge of any other vehicle. Always signal your intent when you plan to make a turn so that other cars will know what you are doing, and keep an eye out for signs and traffic lights so that you can follow them.
