(PRWEB) June 14, 2010 -- National Accident Helpline is urging cyclists and other road users to take extra care to prevent cycling injuries now the improving weather is seeing an increasing number of people take to their bikes, often for the first time in months.

National Bike Week (19th – 26th June) will raise the profile of cycling and encourage greater interest.

A thousand cyclists a year contact accident claims service National Accident Helpline with cycling injuries ranging from cuts and bruises to broken bones and serious, potentially life-changing, injuries. These injuries are often caused by cars overtaking or pulling out from the left, potholes or obstructions in the road.

Beth Powell, consumer director of National Accident Helpline said: "It is tragic that a healthy way of commuting or enjoying the fresh air results in accidents and even fatalities.

"Watching your speed, planning your route in advance, and wearing reflective clothing can make cycling a safer experience. If it has been a long time since you were last on a bike, check your bike’s roadworthiness and build your confidence by practicing on quiet roads.

"The majority of cycling injury victims who approach us do so after accidents involving motorists, so motorists need to share the road and remember the mirror – signal – manoeuvre routine."
