This book is designed to be a succinct overview of the key features of cycling litigation. It looks at cyclists as road users as well as group cycling, racing and professional cyclist claims. The book contains an essential overview of the key aspects of the new Highway code, introduced in January 2022. It also looks at the ins and outs of highways claims and considers the role of cycle helmets and other aspects that could give rise to a finding of contributory negligence on the part of a cyclist.
