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."
