Shine on

Low winter sun can be temporarily blinding or hide you from approaching or following traffic. Be aware of the sun’s position in the sky to ensure other road users can always see you.

Sunglasses or a peaked cycle cap under your helmet can reduce glare off wet, snowy or icy surfaces and minimising the distracting effects of cycling between sun and shade.
