Cycle sensibly and assertively to help yourself stay safe.
Recognise that lorry drivers may not be able to see you
Never cycle up the left side of a lorry stopped at a junction
Look out for lorries turning left from beside or behind you
Don’t stop too close to the front of a stopped lorry
Take up a visible position at lights: three metres out in front and not by the left kerb or very close to the lorry
