Cycle Safety

As many of you will know, we have spoken to all students who cycle to school this week to deliver important messages about road safety. This is always important but we have been particularly concerned recently by a number of reports from members of the public regarding dangerous behaviour of Millthorpe students when riding to and from school. Below is a link to the letter that was handed to students who cycle to school.

 

Cycling Letter

 

It may be helpful to clarify some of the points raised in the letter: firstly, riding two abreast is sometimes advised for safety reasons; however, in the incident which was reported to us, students were clearly riding alongside one another in order to continue their conversations rather than for safety. Riding three or more abreast is not legal under the Highway Code. Similarly, whilst riding in bus lanes may be allowed where indicated by signage, our concerns relate to groups of cyclists making it difficult for buses to pass safely and not paying due attention to their impact on buses and other road users.
