Swatting up on the Highway Code – Some Useful Cycling Safety Tips

Although most of us don’t like to spend our time reading through the rules of cycling they can actually be useful in terms of understanding how to stay safe on the roads. 

The government has created a page on their ‘Direct’ website which outlines the cycling rules which are currently present tin the highway code. 

If you ignore the warnings and concentrate on how the content is helping you stay safe it makes for an informative read. 

The page covers everything from what to wear to what lanes you can use and what clothing to wear.
