  • Use the extensive cycle routes provided.
  • Goodman recommends always wearing a correctly fitted cycle helmet, which is securely fastened and conforms to current regulations.
  • When on the road, ride positively, decisively and well clear of the kerb - look and signal to show drivers what you plan to do and make eye contact where possible so you know drivers have seen you.
  • Avoid riding up the inside of large vehicles, like lorries or buses, where you might not be seen.
  • Always use lights after dark or when visibility is poor.
  • Wearing light coloured or reflective clothing during the day and reflective clothing and/or accessories in the dark increases your visibility.
