    Like any physical activity, cycling is associated with a wide range of dangers. While the benefits of cycling far outweigh the risks, it is essential to take steps to stay safe while cycling on the roads.

    How to stay safe while cycling in Pluckley

    When cycling in Pluckley, you should always:

    • Wear fluorescent clothing
      Good visibility will improve your safety; wearing fluorescent clothing will ensure that you are visible to other road users.
    • Wear a helmet
      Cycling accidents can cause severe head and/or facial injuries. To reduce the risk of injury, you should protect yourself with a cycling helmet. Your chosen helmet should be comfortable and adequately ventilated.
    • Keep away from the kerb
      Ride about one metre away from the kerb to ensure that you have sufficient space to move in if a motor vehicle becomes impatient.
    • Use lights at night
      When riding your bike at night or when visibility is poor, use approved front and rear lights and a red rear reflector.
    • Follow the Highway Code
      When using the roads, remember to follow the Highway Code – do not be tempted to cycle through red lights, disobey road signs or ride on the pavements.
    • Make your intentions clear
      Use clear arm signals to let your fellow road users know your intentions, and always look over your shoulder before you manoeuvre.

    Understanding your legal rights

    If, despite your best efforts, you are involved in a cycling accident, you should consider seeking the advice of an accident lawyer. If the accident was not your fault, you may be able to secure compensation for your injuries.
