During lunch hour, 6th of February, a small group of 9 people from different UCL bodies, London Metropolitan University and City University came together with TfL’s Joe Lewis and Chris Morris to discuss possibilities to make cycling safer for students.
One option, if you feel you could do with some training, is to get free cycle training. The other and more advanced option that TfL provides is a free four-day cycle instructor training for which anyone can sign up and after which you will be accredited with a cycle instructor diploma.
Green Week UCL was reviewed, some events were reviewed and the foundations for safer cycling have been laid.
More information can be found at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/greenucl/whats-happening/programmes/tfl-cycle-safety-ambassador-scheme and any ideas on how TfL and UCL could provide safer cycling are welcome! Let us know what you think by commenting below.
