  • Don’t take risks

    On trunk roads it is inevitable that you will come across larger vehicles going about their business. Trucks travel slower than the speed limit and if fully loaded they will slow down excessively for tight corners and going up steep hills.

    Give yourself more room from larger vehicles, a nice way to think about it is the bigger the vehicle the bigger the space. This creates a safety margin for error, think about what will happen if the truck starts to overtake a cyclist! What would you do?
