Cycle Safety and courses

Brighton and Hove City Council have a cycle safety advice webpage, full of helpful tips, plus links to relevant sections of the Highway Code, which it is important all cyclists are aware of and comply with.
You must make sure your bicycle brakes are effective, and that if cycling at night you use front and rear lights, and have a red rear reflector. It is also important to be visible on the roads, for the safety of all road users, and it is recommended that you wear high visibility and reflective items including clothes, backpack covers and reflective bands.
