  • Poor visibility of cyclists to other vehicles remains a key contributor to vehicle-cycle crashes.
  • An online survey explored concerns, attitudes, and behaviours regarding visibility during the day and at night for 689 cyclists.
  • Cyclists expressed high concerns about their visibility, and its importance for their safety when cycling.
  • Cyclists’ perceptions and behaviours regarding effective ways to increase their visibility at night-time does not always reflect evidence-based conspicuity strategies.
  • Increased education around clothing choices to improve conspicuity and safety is needed, particularly placement of reflective materials.
