You’ve probably heard of the Highway Code. It’s a set of guidelines for all road users and gives you the information you need to deal with difficult road conditions, be mindful of other traffic, and complete your journey safely.
However, it’s easy to forget good habits once you get used to your preferred mode of transport. With more people – including cyclists – using the roads than ever before, it’s crucial that we take some time to refresh our memories on a regular basis. Although cycling is healthy, environmentally friendly, and much cheaper than travelling by car, many people are reluctant to make it a habit due to safety concerns. By following the laws and advice in the Highway Code, you can help to make the roads easier for everyone to navigate. You may even be inspired to take up cycling yourself (if you haven’t already!).
The Bike Storage Company have put together a Highway Code quiz to help you test your knowledge and see how well you really know the rules of the road. Some of the answers may surprise you – let us know what score you get!
