Look after yourself: Take special care at junctions, when cycling downhill and on loose surfaces In remote areas carry food,repair kit,map and waterproofs Keep your bike roadworthy; use lights in poor visibility Consider wearing a helmet and conspicuous clothing

Care for the environment: Can you reach the start of your journey by bike or public transport? Follow the Country Code; in particular, respect crops, livestock and wildlife and take litter home
