- When overtaking a cyclist the Highway Code says to leave as much space as you would when passing a car.
- At 30mph we advise 1.5metres is the minimum safe distance.
- At faster speeds allow 2 metres.
- In slow moving urban traffic (below 20 mph), never overtake cyclists unless you can leave at least 1 metre.
- If there’s not enough space to pass safely, travel behind the cyclist until space becomes available.
