12.28 | 4 June 2021 | |

The virtual stage is set for Road Safety GB’s online cycle safety event – which gets underway on Monday (7 June).

The three-week event, titled ‘More cycling, safer cyclists: how can we make it safer for more people to cycle, more often?’, will be aired free-to-all until 25 June.

The programme comprises a mix of pre-recorded and live content including video presentations, a workshop and a Question Time session. All the pre-recorded content will be published on the programme page at 10am on its advertised day.

The event will open with a pre-recorded presentation from Nick Chamberlin, policy manager, British Cycling.

In his role at British Cycling, Nick supports the organisation with government and external affairs, with a particular focus on active travel and the built environment.

Nick’s presentation is titled: Roads should work for everyone – it is the time to give our streets to our children.

Other organisations providing pre-recorded presentations across the three weeks include the Department for Transport (DfT), the Road Safety Trust, the Bikeability Trust, Transport for West Midlands and the Staffordshire Safer Roads Partnership.

Meanwhile, there are a number of live sessions taking place, for which registration is required (free of charge).
