Buchan Community Safety Group have launched a campaign to raise awareness of cycling safety in the dark autumn nights.

Community Warden, Ian Kennedy, said: “At this time of year, with the clocks changing and the dark nights being with us, we are still seeing cyclists, both young and old, without bike lights, reflective clothing or helmets.

“The lights are of little cost and by getting them you are covering yourself for safety.”

Gary Duncan of Duncan’s Cycles has kindly offered to fit bike lights for free at the shop.

Ian added: “Be prepared, be safe and don’t get caught out.”
