Bright on Your Bike

Give drivers the best opportunity to see you when you are cycling day, dusk and especially at night by making yourself bright – fluorescent for day and reflective for night.

Does High Vis Make Me Safer on My Bike?

Wearing high vis will never guarantee your safety but along with other measures it can help. It’s ultimately up to drivers to be paying proper attention but you can help them by making yourself easier to see. This is especially important in poor light conditions such as in bad weather, at dawn, dusk or night.

Do I Have to Wear High Vis When Cycling?

Wearing high vis when cycling is your choice (or your parents’ choice if you are a child… and we’ll come that in a minute). It is not a legal requirement in the UK, unless you are in a workplace environment that requires it as part of PPE (personal protection equipment) rules.

If you are a parent and want your child to wear high vis when cycling but they really don’t want to, consider this – if they are cycling they are improving their life and health chances so stopping them from cycling could actually have a more harmful effect than letting them go out without high vis.

Ensure they have good cycle training, lights on their bike… and maybe don’t buy them a black jacket this year.
