Cycle Smart, Cycle Safe

Cycle Smart, Cycle Safe

Cycling has never been more popular. And why not? It’s fun, fast and affordable. Cycling reduces pollution and eases traffic congestion. On top of all the great exercise cyclists get, they’re also reducing their fuel bills.

Cycling is very safe too, provided cyclists stick to a few common sense rules when they’re out on the roads. This is the basis for the new ‘Cycle Smart, Cycle Safe’ campaign from the Road Safety Authority, which comprises of four short advisory films.

These films, available to view here cover all the main safety aspects of cycling and what simply makes good cycling sense.

  1. Equipment Check: This covers the correct set-up of a bicycle and the necessary safety equipment. Is the saddle the correct height? Are the tyres nice and firm, and the bell, lights and brakes all working properly? The film also gives advice on the choosing and wearing of a properly approved helmet and the importance of high visibility clothing.
  2. Rules of the Road: Cyclists need to obey the same rules of the road as every other road user. Stopping at red lights, understanding and heeding road signs and markings is for the good of everyone’s safety, including theirs.
  3. Sharing the Road: Cyclists need to be aware and mindful of other road users. As well as having to obey the same rules, they also have the same rights. This film covers subjects including how cyclists should pass parked cars, cycling in heavy traffic and the importance of maintaining a safe distance from larger vehicles.
  4. Signalling: Here, cyclists can learn the proper signalling procedures for making turns and using roundabouts, as well as the cautionary aspects of dealing with other vehicles when signalling.

Cycle Smart, Cycle Safe is all about following the simple rules that will allow everyone to enjoy all that cycling has to offer, without the worry.
