Getting out on a bike or scooter for just a relatively short period of time is a fantastic way to combat the stress of everyday life and enhance your psychological wellbeing including reducing anxiety, boosting your mood and improving self-esteem.
If you are out in public during lockdown you must maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from other people at all times when cycling/scooting, and avoid riding in others’ slipstream.
To keep a safe distance:
-Cycle/scoot on your own or with members of your household
-Avoid riding in the slipstream of someone who is not of your household
-Ride well away from the kerb when passing pedestrians, after checking there are no other road users behind you first
-Move near the centre of the lane to encourage others to give you more room when they pass.
