We are pleased to have partnered with Cycling UK, the national cycling charity in the United Kingdom, to help increase cycling awareness and education for delivery partners, drivers, and the general public.
Cycling UK has produced five videos instructing cyclists on basic road safety and bike maintenance, complemented by five written guides. The videos feature advice on road positioning, how to safely approach junctions, signalling and awareness of other road users as well as top tips on how to look after a bike. If you use a bicycle to deliver, we hope you’ll find these guides helpful.
The written guides show cyclists how to prepare their bikes to ride safely and how to fix basic problems they may encounter when cycling. These guides have been specially designed to be downloaded on your phone and are easily accessible.
