Remember, wherever you decide to cycle, pedestrians should be given priority on shared paths so be considerate, slow down and use your bell.  Use lights at night or when visibility is poor – wearing reflective clothing at any time of the day is also a good idea, but especially at night.  Be vigilant and aware of your surroundings and traffic at all times.  Watch out for vehicle doors opening and make eye contact with drivers waiting to pull out.  Don’t overtake lorries or buses on the left at junctions as they have a blind spot.  Help yourself to stay safe and never cycle in a careless or dangerous way.
