"As we get older the likelihood of being injured on the road increases so it's helpful to become more aware of the potential hazards and how to avoid them."

It is never too late to start cycling! It's a healthier and cheaper alternative to driving and is proven to contribute to an overall sense of wellbeing.
Becoming a cyclist can be a little daunting but there are many ways to ensure safe cycling.
There are many factors involved in being a safe driver, from car maintenance to child passenger safety and ways that health and medicines can affect driving ability.
There also may be a time when you decide to stop driving.
Buses are a great way of getting around, are a cheaper alternative to taking the car and better for the environment.
They can also be good for socialising and meeting new people on our travels.
Walking is one of the simplest and easiest forms of transportation and it has numerous health and financial benefits.
It’s also great way to keep active and increase fitness. However, there can be some hazards in being a pedestrian but there are some simple ways to minimise risks and walk wisely.
"I was turning right at a junction, carefully looking out for cars coming both ways.
That's probably why I didn't notice the cyclist coming. Luckily, he managed to stop just in time, but he wasn't best pleased."
