Well done to everybody who wears a helmet!
Wear the right safety clothing
  • Always wear a cycle helmet, even if you are not
    cycling on the road.
  • Cycling helmets protect your amazing brains!
  • Make sure your helmet fits you properly. It
    should not cover your ears or eyes and it should
    fit securely.

Wear the right safety clothing
  • Your helmet should have a Safety Standard number
    on it. Ask your parent or guardian to help you
    check this.
  • Clothing can also help make you more visible.
    Wear bright clothes in the day and reflective
    clothing at night so that other road users can
    see you.

Ride the right bike!
  • Riding a bike that is the right size for you and
    making sure it is always in good condition is
    very important.
  • There is an easy way to tell if your bike is the
    right size. You should be able to put both feet
    on the floor at the same time when you are
    sitting in the saddle.

Keep your bike healthy!
  • Check that your tyres are not flat and that your
    brakes work before you go anywhere.
  • Make sure that you have the right lighting as
    well. By law, you must have a front light, a
    back light and a red rear reflector on your
    bicycle if you are cycling at night.

Plan your route
  • Plan your route before you go, using cycle paths
    as much as possible.
  • Make sure your parents or guardians know where
    you are going and how long it will take you to
    get there.

Be a responsible road user
  • Try to use cycle paths wherever you can.
  • If you cannot use a cycle path, ride carefully on
    the left-hand side of the road. Make sure that
    vehicles can overtake you but do not ride too
    close to the pavement.
  • Always ride single file.

Be a responsible road user
  • Never ride with two people on a bicycle made for
  • Always keep both your hands on the handlebars
    unless you are signalling.
  • Avoid looking at car headlights straight on so
    that you do not get dazzled.
  • Remember - you must not cycle on the road unless
    you have had training.
