Exchanging Places
Tuesday 29 Mar 2016

Kingston Council, working in partnership with Transport for London, the Metropolitan and Transport police, is holding an 'Exchanging Places' event to allow cyclists to see the world from the perspective of a Heavy Goods Vehicle driver.

They will have the opportunity to sit in a cab, understand where the potential blind spots could be, and become more aware of how they can position themselves on the road to become more visible to drivers of HGV's

There will also be free security marking for bikes, advice on secure locking, a Dr Bike session and a cycle powered Scalextric.

The event will be held in the Market Place in Kingston town centre between 10am and 3pm on Tuesday 29 March 2016. The lorry will be in the Market Place from 11am to 2pm.

Starts:
10:00 - Tuesday 29/03/2016
Ends:
15:00 - Tuesday 29/03/2016

Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

You can read more about our training here, and learn more about being a Bikeability Instructor here

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on info@cyclekingston.net with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
