The number of bikes on UK roads has increased by 28.9% since 1997, along with a 16.9% increase in motor traffic during the same time. The distance people cycle has increased by 50% since 2002. It’s more important than ever for all road users to take extra care.
One way to do this is by knowing the Highway Code – a set of guidelines for all road users, including motorists, cyclists, horse riders and pedestrians.
