Being Bike Smart
Bike Smart is the message at the heart of this year’s Road Safety Week, focusing on the safety of those on two wheels. Taking place between the 19th – 25th November and coordinated by Brake, Road Safety Week seeks to raise public awareness over road safety, acting as the driver for positive change on our roads.
The number of cyclists in the UK is increasing at a rapid pace, however, those on two wheels are among the most vulnerable UK road users. More than a third of people killed or seriously injured on UK roads are those travelling by bike (either bicycle or motorcycle and more than 100 bike riders are injured every day in needless, preventable crashes.
