Cycling safety and training

Safe cycling

Our Drive Safe Cycle Safe campaign aims to improve cyclist safety by raising awareness of

  • advanced stop line
  • risks of undertaking Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV)
  • the importance of being seen when cycling.

If your route takes you close to a tram line please see our advice on cycling near trams.
