With nearly 4,000,000 Australians cycling per week, cycling safety is as important as ever. The numbers are clear – more Australians are making their commutes by bicycle. As a healthy, inexpensive transport option, this means more cyclists on the road. Drivers need to know how to interact with cyclists, and cyclists need to know their responsibilities as well. This webinar will outline how to share the road safely, both for motorists and cyclists. Drivers will learn how to safely overtake cyclists, what to look out for and what to avoid doing. Cyclists will learn how to be safer, how to be seen and what to look out for.

The webinar will be presented by Simon Gillett on Tuesday 16 August 2016.

Simon founded the Amy Gillett Foundation following the death of his wife, Amy Gillett, who was killed by a driver while she was cycling in Germany with the Australian women’s cycling team. Concerned at the state of safety on Australian roads, Simon, together with Amy’s parents, established the Foundation to create a memory for Amy and also make the roads a safer place for cyclists.

Webinar participants please note – this session will commence at 11:00am AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time). There may be time zone differences that apply. It is recommended that you connect to the webinar 15 minutes prior to allow sufficient time for potential connection delays.
