When you’re overtaking a cyclist, you should leave as much room as you would give to a car. What’s the main reason for this?

The cyclist might speed up

The cyclist might get off their bike

The cyclist might swerve
The cyclist might have to make a left turn

Before overtaking, assess the situation. Look well ahead to see whether the cyclist will need to change direction. Be especially aware of a cyclist approaching parked vehicles, as they’ll need to alter course. Don’t pass too closely or cut in sharply.
