Tips from the Safe Cycling Programme for Youth

1 Check your bicycle to make sure it is in good condition before riding.

2 At designated crossings, dismount and push your bicycle across the road only after looking right and left and ensuring the road is clear.

3 Use hand signals to warn other road users of your intentions.

4 Wear protective gear such as a helmet, light coloured clothing and shoes. When cycling at night, wear reflective gear.

5 Be extra alert at road junctions.
