When cycling, you need all your senses to keep you alert and safe on the road.
Distractions, such as wearing headphones and not looking properly, can cause cyclists to misjudge the speed of oncoming traffic and make unsafe manoeuvres.
Cycling and walking have many health benefits and can connect people to places across Norfolk's network of quiet roads, trails and other public rights of way.
Walking and cycling offer solutions to the problems of traffic congestion in our towns and poor health in our society, contribute to an improved quality of life, a stronger economy and an enhanced environment. We have been working with our partners on a strategy to lead to a significant and sustained increase in cycling and walking in Norfolk, establishing both in the public’s mind as ‘normal’ transport – especially for short distances.
Tax free bikes for work are available through the Government's Green Transport Initiative.
