Overtaking Cyclists Safely - Patience Please!

The number of leisure and competitive cyclists using the A422 through Chicheley, and on the A509and local rural roads, is increasing.  Cycling clubs organise events when many riders, often in a large group, pass through Chicheley.  This can cause frustration to motorists, but in reality only means a short delay.

In the interests of safety, the following information on safe overtaking of cyclists by motorists was issued at the last Parish Meeting.

A short delay to overtake a cyclist safely is a much better option than overtaking dangerously, which could cause injury and result in prosecution. Patience please!
