Watch out for safe winter cycling

The freezing cold and unpredictable weather could put some cyclists off sticking to two wheels for their daily commute.

To help counter this, a brand new video has been produced which gives residents of Nottinghamshire some top tips on how to cycle safely in the winter months.

Three Nottingham sustainable travel organisations – TravelRight, Sustrans and Ridewise have teamed up together to bring in their expertise at keeping safe and visible on cycle journeys. The video has been made to encourage continued cycling throughout the winter season and to help keep cycling figures up. ┬áThe increase in cycling around Nottingham at around the 30% mark shows no sign of stopping and the advisory video aims to keep it that way.

The video can be viewed at https://vimeo.com/117377403 or email travelright.broxtowe@ridewise.org.uk to have the clip emailed to you.

Visit the Ridewise, Sustrans or TravelRight websites to keep up to date with cycling advice and information. For information on TravelRight visit www.travelright.org.uk or email travelright.broxtowe@ridewise.org.uk

Cycling in winter can be wonderful but plan ahead and be careful!
