Keep them safe, keep them seen

We all want young people to enjoy cycling at night whilst being safe, but with the nights drawing in and the clocks going back, cycling on the road becomes more dangerous.

Winter is one of the worst times for accidents involving cyclists due to drivers dealing with poor visibility in winter weather conditions, often when children and young people are cycling home from after school clubs.
As parents and carers of children and young people who cycle home or play on their bikes after school, we should ensure we make our children and young people as visible as possible in these dim conditions.
