Cycle Safely This Winter
Evenings are getting darker as we get closer to the winter months. Here's some top tips from Notts Police:
Invest in some good quality winter clothing, as getting cold and wet doesn’t make for a good riding experience, plus it could also affect your riding ability. Ensuring you have the right clothing for winter cycling will help you keep warm and dry.
Hi-viz clothing is very effective at making you visible at night.
Add reflective items to body parts that move, i.e. shoes with reflective strips, reflective wrist bands and gloves.
Wear a rear light on your back pack or your helmet for extra visibility. The additional height of the light will be at eye level for most motorists.
Please ensure your bike has working illuminated front and rear lights between sunset and sunrise and during periods of reduced visibility.
