Light up, be seen and be safe

Posted on 23 November 2019

Cyclists - claim free high-visibility vests, bike lights, and 'slap wrap' arm reflectors.

With dark evenings, it's important to be seen if you're cycling on the roads.

The Highway Code states that, at night, cyclists must have white front and red rear lights. Bikes must also be fitted with a red rear reflector and amber pedal reflectors.
