Commute Smart: How to deal with hazards on your commute

Whether you’re a dedicated cycle commuter or cycling to work for the first time; brushing up on cycling best practice is always a great idea. And thanks to British Cycling, this is easier than ever to do. 

British Cycling has created the ‘Commute Smart’ series; a collection of short videos that tackle common commuter questions and provide handy advice for staying safe on two wheels.

As a cycle commuter you can encounter many hazards on your route to work; from other road users, to bad weather, and the poor repair of roads. In their latest video, British Cycling offers straightforward advice on ‘How to deal with the hazards on your commute’. Ensuring you’re seen and heard is the key to a safe cycle commute. Watch the below video for guidance on sharing the road safely with other users, as well as advice on tackling potholes and grates, and tips for travelling in wet or cold conditions.  

At Cyclescheme, our mission is to create cyclists. That’s why we bring you the best cycling advice and know-how so you’re equipped with the knowledge needed to cycle with confidence, and ultimately, to cycle safely.
