How to Avoid Bike Accidents

How to Avoid Bike Accidents

Cycling is a great way to get some exercise and fresh air. However, it’s also a potentially dangerous activity. Every year, there are thousands of bicycle accidents, many of which result in serious injuries or even death.Stonehewer Moss Solicitors 5

As a cyclist, it’s important to be aware of the dangers on the road and take steps to avoid accidents. Here are some tips on how to do just that.

Cycle Accident Statistics

According to Gov.uk, in 2020, 141 pedal cyclists were killed in the UK, whilst 4,215 were reported to be seriously injured and 11,938 slightly injured.

 Pedal cycle traffic has risen between 2004 and 2020 faster than serious injuries whilst fatalities and slight injuries have fallen.

During 2020, pedal cyclist fatalities rose by 41% while pedal cyclist traffic rose by 46%.

Be Visible

One of the best ways to avoid being hit by a car is to make sure you’re visible. Wear brightly coloured clothing so that drivers can see you, even when it’s dark out.

You might also want to consider investing in some reflective gear so that you can be seen at night. If you ride regularly, it’s also a good idea to get a headlight and taillight for your bike.

Obey the Rules of the Road

Just like drivers, cyclists need to obey the rules of the road. This means riding in the same direction as traffic and using hand signals to indicate when you’re turning.

It’s also important to yield to pedestrians and use caution when passing other cyclists or vehicles. By following the rules of the road, you can help ensure that everyone stays safe.

Wear a Helmet

The most important thing you can do to prevent a bike accident is to wear a helmet.

A helmet will protect your head in the event of a fall or collision, and can potentially save your life. Even if you’re an experienced rider, it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Be Aware of Your Surroundings

In order to avoid accidents, you need to be aware of what’s happening around you at all times.

This means keeping your head up and being on the lookout for hazards such as potholes, glass, or debris in the road. It’s also important to be aware of cars, especially when riding in intersections or near parked vehicles.

By paying attention to your surroundings, you can help avoid being involved in an accident.



Bicycling is a great way to stay active and enjoy the outdoors. However, it’s important to be aware of the dangers on the road and take steps to avoid accidents.

By being visible, obeying the rules of the road, and being aware of your surroundings, you can help keep yourself safe while cycling.
