DON’T try to take on multi-lane junctions and roundabouts full of tourists in hire cars and out of town lorry drivers who don’t know which lane they are supposed to be in. That’s how casualties happen. Use the pedestrian crossing to navigate these dangerous areas. Just get off and walk, get a breather, and carry on the other side.
LOOK over your right shoulder ALL THE TIME. Stay away from vehicles, make sure they have seen you, make sure they know your intention BEFORE you manoeuvre.
Before you change course: LOOK. SEE. BE SEEN. (Mirror Signal Manouvre for bikes)
