Tips from the experts
Being visible whilst riding is also about your behaviour – don’t be afraid to take up space on the road if you feel you need it, be cautious of vehicle blind spots and always signal clearly.
Melanie, Chief Bike Officer @ Cycl
Think about visibility from all angles - can you be seen from the front and side? And place lights on parts of your body that move (e.g. helmet, ankle) so car drivers see the movement and know you're a cyclist.
Freya, Community Manager @ Beryl
It’s great to see the bicycle becoming integral to urban mobility across Britain. Keeping rider and bike safe is vitally important to continuing this trend and the environmental and health benefits it brings with it.
Ben, Founder @ Hiplok
