Cycle Safety

Appearance on 3AW. Parking on Beach Rd.

by , under Cycle Safety

I was a guest on the 3AW sports today programme where they discussed proposals for the corridor strategy through the bayside Council area on beach Road. I think it is a well thought out segment. Please feel free to have a listen it is at the beginni

ng of the 3AW Sports Today Podcast, Wednesday August 10. The segment appears at the beginning of the program.

Enjoy,

Mike.

SBS News-Rest in Peace John Cornish

by , under Cycle Safety

Following the death of John Cornish whilst riding his bike within 200 m of the site of my accident SBS ran a news story on bike safety. The circumstances of his death are frighteningly similar to the cause of my accident.

John was an advocate for safe cycling, and it is important that we all take up the mantle to continue his work. It is time for the cycling community to show other road users that they are serious about road safety. In order to gain more rights and respect on the road we must show motorists that we are serious about minimising serious injury and fatalities whilst cycling. The Amy Gillett Foundation has a Road Users Code which is worth a read. It gives a good overview of how to use the road safely as either a cyclist or a motorist.

Appearance on Channel 9 News – Share the Roads

by , under Cycle Safety

I was interviewed for a story that Channel 9 news was running with some statistics revealing that cyclists break Road rules. With any segment of the community there will be lawbreakers but nothing changes the consequences of when a cyclist is hit

by a motorist whether they are breaking the laws or not. Obviously motorists break the rules as well but the consequences are not as great when a cyclist hits a motorist!
