A message from Assistant Chief Constable Mark Hopkins about cycle safety

As a keen cyclist I enjoy the outdoors. I get to do something I really enjoy, meet up with friends and it keeps me fit too!

Cycle safety is really important and we all need to consider not just our own safety but the safety of other roads users.

As a cyclist my safety tips are:

  • Avoid busy ‘A’ roads
  • Always anticipate the potential for not being seen at junctions
  • Make eye contact when you can
  • Be courteous and ride considerately
  • Always, always wear a helmet

Staying safe should not restrict your enjoyment of cycling, it’s just about being sensible.

We have lots more information on our website.
