Stay safe message

HIGH Peak police are urging cyclists to stay safe as the nights get darker.

PCSO Karen Green, of the Chapel and Chinley Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Cycling can be safe but as the darker evenings approach and the weather deteriorates we would advise cyclists to take extra care while out on the roads.

“We also encourage motorists to take extra care around cyclists and give them the same consideration as any other vehicle.”

Advice includes always wear a helmet and make sure your bike is roadworthy.
