Be safe, Be seen!

Posted on: Wed 10 Jan 2018

Riding a bike is a great way to get around and get fit. But some riders are hesitant due to the inherent safety risks in cycling.

The Motor Accident Commission and Bike SA have teamed up to present a free talk on cycling safety, called Be Safe, Be Seen.

Gerri Nellighan, one of the speakers at Be Safe, Be Seen says her best advice for cyclists is to get their brights on and to have flashing lights at all times. 

‘Wear light, be bright, black is incredibly trendy, but seriously it’s about the worst colour you can wear on a bicycle. Having flashing lights on a bike is one of the most important things cyclists can do, even during the brightest day it really increase cyclists visibility to motorists,’ Gerri says.
