A clear message about York's cycling status has been fixed to signs on approach roads to the city.

Cycling City York branding, complete with the message 'Respect On Our Roads', has been added to the city's 'Welcome to York' signs.

As well as trumpeting York's Cycling City initiative, the signs are also designed to remind drivers to go safely when within the city limits.

Trish Hirst, road safety officer, said: “We’re committed to reducing the number of people injured on York’s roads and, by having these Cycling City York badged signs in such prominent locations on approach roads to the city, we’re letting motorists know that they will encounter lots of cyclists in York and giving them a timely reminder to drive responsibly.”
