Feeling safe when you ride your bike is a huge thing.  It helps you to feel confident and allows you to get more out of your riding.  Preparing well for whatever environment you choose to ride in is important.  Answer the question ‘Am I Safe to Ride?’ so that when something does go wrong you will be in a much better position to handle it as well as you can.
We have prepared six checklists that concentrate on YOUR safety during different types of riding.  Each type of riding puts you in a slightly different environment and requires you to think about slightly different things.
