    How to ride a bike safely on the road

    Riding a bike is good for your health and helps you to get around in a more environmentally conscious way than taking a car or public transport. However, when you are on a bike you are a slightly more vulnerable road user, as you are still in the traffic with other vehicles, but have much less protection and are a much easier target to hit accidentally. Here are some tips for staying safe when you are riding your bike on the road.

    Look out for parked cars

    Parked cars can, in so many ways, prove more of a hazard than moving ones for people riding bikes. This is because you can easily be hidden from view behind a parked car, making it more likely that you will be hit, or that a door will open and knock you into the road. Steer as far clear of a parked car as you can.


    Although you don’t have signals on your bike you should learn the hand signals you need to give plenty of warning to the vehicles around you that you are about to make a turn, or manoeuvre.

    Choose well lit roads

    If you do have to travel by bike at night then always choose the busiest most well lit roads so that the road is likely to be clear and safe, and you are more likely to be able to see the road ahead of you.

    Position yourself well in lanes

    To be completely safe on a bike it is always best that you position yourself clearly in a lane, so that other drivers can see and avoid you. It is better to be in the middle of a lane than to hide at the side.
