Overtaking cyclists safely

You need to constantly be on the lookout for cyclists because they are a lot less visible than cars and motor vehicles.

Whilst cyclists should have lights in poor light conditions or in the dark, not all of them do, and so you need to be particularly vigilant as light levels drop that there aren't cyclists around.

It can be frustrating following a slow moving cyclist particularly when you are hungry and want to get home for tea. However you should resist the urge to pass a cyclist when it is not safe to do so. You need to ensure that you leave them sufficient room in which to move as you pass as cyclists generally won't go in a perfect straight line so don't push or squeeze them against the kerb - give them plenty of space in which to move.

In addition if there is a poor road surface for instance potholes then bikes will swerve around these, so again you need to ensure that you give them plenty of space for that reason too.

It hardly needs saying that otherwise you risk causing them an accident or even knocking them over which is a deeply unpleasant experience for all concerned.
