- Check your bike before cycling. Are the brakes in working order? is the saddle the correct height? Is a bell fitted and working? Is there a bicycle lock?
- If you are going to cycle at night, are the lights working?
- You must obey the Road Traffic Law at all times. Concentrate, try to anticipate what is going to happen ahead of you and think safety. Do not take risks.
- Do not jump red lights.
- Stop at yellow lines.
- Do not ride on pavements.
- Children must wear a helmet and adults are advised to wear one.
- Keep to speed limits, particularly on cycle tracks which are used by walkers.

- Where possible use cycle parking.
- When overtaking another cyclist always ring your bell, check behind you and signal.
- If you have a mechanical problem, pull clear of the traffic before attending to it.
