Cycling near lorries? Watch this video then sit in the cab of a lorry yourself

Next event is Thursday 17 March at Burrell Street, SE1 0UN (see map) 07.30-10.00am
Location: 

 

Cyclists, lorry blind spots are bigger than you think.

Click on the attachment video links - here and here - and see how none of the cyclists along the side of the lorry can be seen from the driver's seat inside the cab.

What's the message? Don't undertake lorries at junctions.

Then come to one of the regular 'Lorries for Savvy Cyclists' events held by Bankside Logistics Group and Better Bankside Smarter Travel Group with the Met Police. You can experience the view from the cab yourself. Details of upcoming cycling events are on the Better Bankside Events page. Get your bike security marked and have a free mechanic check over while you're there. There's even tea and coffee.

Many London Boroughs also offer cycle training. Find out more
