Ridesmart is a series in partnership with British Cycling aimed at Sportive riders. Stay aware and let others know about hazards on the road to stay safe.

This video explains how to deal with them and how to alert other riders to the presence of these hazards. Other hazards – like horses and oncoming vehicles – are a little more obvious, but you still need to approach with caution and let other riders know what's coming up.
