Update: we have had to move the meeting to a larger room due to popular demand! The meeting will now take place in Lecture Theatre 3 on the Ground Floor of Richmond Building, University of Portsmouth.
Fantastic News! We’re pleased to announce we’ll have a very special guest speaker at our open meeting on Thursday 12 November. Dr Rachel Aldred, senior lecturer in transport at Westminster University, will join us to talk about the Near Miss Project. Dr Aldred is one of the UK’s pre-eminent experts on cycling and has been behind much of the work that has created such a solid base of evidence about the benefits of cycling. In fact we drew on her research frequently whilst drafting A City to Share.
Dr Aldred is in great demand to talk about her work so we’re very lucky to get her for the evening. Her research looks at those ‘close shaves’ which don’t result in injury, but very much affect cyclists’ behaviour and may give a clue as to where actual injuries may occur in the future.
We’ll also be hearing about the work of the team we set up to look at why so few children cycle to school and what can be done to get more children cycling.
So make sure you get down to Lecture Theatre 3, Ground Floor, Richmond Building, University of Portsmouth by 6.45 to get a seat! The meeting starts at 7pm, and we’ll also be talking about the latest accident figures and how to get more women and children cycling. Don’t forget: 6.45pm on Thursday 12 November.
