Hackney cyclists get a chance to exchange places with HGV drivers

Encouraging cyclists to safe cycling this winter, Hackney Council have co-ordinated an event, hosted by the Council’s Streetscene Team, in partnership with the Metropolitan Police.

Cyclists can ride in and get a free, on-the-spot bike health check and free bike marking. They can also exchange places with an HGV driver to help them understand how to cycle safely and confidently, especially around lorries and large vehicles.

Practical support and advice will be available at Cycle Pit Stop,  Thursday 19 January, 4pm to 7pm, at Martello Street by London Fields Park, E8.

About Remi

Remi Hackney Hive founder, publisher and contributor. Hackneyite and all round Girl Friday who couldn't wait to leave Hackney and London behind her. After hitching her wagon in California, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana for 18 years, with a brief spell in Mexico, the prodigal daughter returned to London, happy to put an unconventional and risqué past behind her. It sometimes feels like she’s still at war with herself. This often leads her into a whole lot of trouble, although it’s fair to blame it on some of her best qualities: intelligence, original thinking, willingness to take risks, skepticism, rebelliousness, independence, and creativity. But you know what, much of the trouble she gets into is because she can’t help pointing out that the emperor is naked. Remi still lives by her own rules, nobody else’s. She is owned by her two dogs Deffer(a Jack Russell & Darcy a Jack Russell/Pomeranian mix) and is proprietor of London’s finest and long established pet sitting service. The big smoke is home for the moment, but she desperately yearns wide open spaces, where she hopes to call home in the near future.
