cyclistsTHE Guardia Civil has launched a campaign urging drivers to keep cyclists safe on the roads.

The ‘A life goes on a bike’ campaign begs drivers to leave cyclists a berth of 1.5 metres when overtaking them.

“It’s not a cyclist, it’s a father or mother, brother or sister, son or daughter that you’re overtaking – so give them 1.5 metres as there’s space for everyone,” reads the statement.

The latest statistics confirm there were 6,890 cyclist accidents on Spain’s roads with 75 deaths, 54 of them on dual carriageways, in 2014.
