    If you enjoy cycling on a regular basis, then this can have extreme health benefits, for example, weight loss and keeping you fit. Riding a bicycle can be an easy way to include exercise in to your daily life. If you can incorporate it as your form of transport as well then this can help to save money and be good for the environment.

    It is the third most popular activity throughout the UK, because of these main reasons and also because it can appeal to all ages from toddlers to pensioners.

    Taking care to avoid having to use the solicitors in Exeter after a cycle accident that was not your fault

    You need to take the necessary precautions to help avoid an accident, as with all activities that could involve vehicles. But if you have been injured through no fault of your own then you may need to use the solicitors in Exeter to make a personal injury claim.

    Always make sure that you are wearing the correct protective clothing, for example, a good fitting helmet is essential.  You should not  buy a used helmet, as previous damage doesn’t always show and this can affect it’s ability to keep you safe.  Ensure the helmet is a snug fit and wear it in the proper position, not tilted onto the back of your head.

    Also make sure that your bicycle fulfills all the legal regulations, including lights if riding at night, as well as wearing something reflective.

    • When riding with someone else don’t ride next to each other on busy or narrow roads.
