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.
