The following additional safety measure have been sent in my Sarah
"I always try to cycle at least two feet from the kerb or on the
road signs of the yellow lines. This means that car driver take me
more seriously and don't try to squeeze me into the kerb; cars and
lorries slow down before overtaking me, meaning that I am less likely to
be caught by a "whoosh" of air as they pass at speed. Also
if I do hit a pot hole, skid or swerve I have more room to correct before
hitting the kerb".
Another tip send in by Clare Barnett:-
"Wear something bright all year round and not just in the dark and cycle
more careful on wet roads they can be very slippery in the wet. "
