Give Cyclists Space
We recently put a story up highlighting that a motorist overtaking a cyclist at speed within 3 feet is the equivalent of standing between the yellow line and a passing train on a station platform.
This, coupled with some rather choice overtakes made whilst we were recently up in Scotland cycling really hit home just how vulnerable we can be whilst out on the bike.
It’s so important that motorists and cyclists remember, we share the same piece of real estate and whilst some motorists may think that cyclists aren’t close enough to the kerb, we may well be avoiding poor tarmac, drains, pot holes, debris and, unless you cycle you will never know just how difficult it can be to stay upright on your bike on UK roads without even taking into account passing motorists!
Lets respect each other and keep cyclists safe.
Take your time when overtaking cyclists!
