Cycle safety day at the power station
Published: Friday 23rd August 13
Battersea Power Station and blu-3 will be playing host to a Cycle Awareness Safety Day on Tuesday, 3 September 2013.
The event will be held at Battersea Power Station, Main Gate (Battersea Park Road), London. It runs from 7.30am to 6.30pm.
The day is free of charge and open to all ages.
In partnership with The Metropolitan Police, British Transport Police, Havebike and others, the day will offer demonstrations on safety, security marking for bikes and services for minor repairs - all free of charge.
The Metropolitan Police Cycle Task Force will also be hosting "Exchanging Places", an event that allows people to sit in the driver's seat of a Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) or bus to get a better understanding of what the driver can and can't see, especially in regards to cyclists on the nearside and directly in front of the vehicle.
The event is hosted by blu-3 (UK) Limited and Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) on behalf of the shareholders of Battersea Power Station.
The event is intended to help minimise the risk of collisions between cyclists and HGVs by raising awareness on both sides of how to cycle and drive as safely as possible.
