Road safety is important all year round, but when riding a bike in the dark you need to think about how visible you are.

A '˜Be safe, be seen' event took place on October 28 where cyclists met local British Cycling Ride Leaders and joined them on a bike ride.

Coun David Rose, cabinet member for Children, Families, Learning and Leisure, said: 'Cycling is a great way to keep active whilst discovering the great outdoors and socialising with others. However, as the dark nights start to pull in it does bring with it some safety issues for cyclists.

Coun Rose  added: ' At both rideson the day   there were  front and rear bike lights  that were given away, which of  course   are great for the dark nights.'
