Advice and tips on how to stay safe while cycling on Irish roads.

  • Never cycle in the dark without adequate lighting – white for front, red for rear
  • Always wear luminous clothing such as hi-vis vests, fluorscent armbands and reflective belts so that other road users can see you
  • Wear a helmet
  • Make sure you keep to the left. Always look behind and give the proper signal before moving off, changing lanes or making a turn
  • Follow the rules of the road, never run traffic lights or weave unpredictably in and out of traffic
  • Maintain your bike properly – in particular, your brakes should work properly and your tyres should be inflated to the right pressure and be in good condition
  • Respect other road users – don’t get into shouting matches with motorists; stop at pedestrian crossings; don’t cycle on the footpath
  • Watch your speed, especially when cycling on busy streets and going downhill
  • Steer well clear of left-turning trucks: let them turn before you move ahead
