Seminar: Cycling, health and safety: winning the arguments

“Cycling, health and safety: winning the arguments”

in just over  a week’s time. The cycling seminar is FREE to attend and is being organised by “Cycle Nation”, the Federation of Cycle Campaign Groups, in Birmingham on Saturday 21 April.

Some outline details are below. There are limited places so please book early: http://www.cyclenation.org.uk/seminar/seminar.php


Expert speakers include:

 

·         Professor Bruce Lynn (T&HSG) on health and cycling;

·         Malcolm Wardlaw (T&HSG) on risks;

·         Dr Peter Ward on helmets;

·         Jason Torrance (Sustrans) on free-range kids;

·         Martin Porter, QC, on legal remedies;

·         David Dansky (Cycle Training UK) on impacts on cycle training.

 

The meeting will close with a discussion on acting locally, and there will be plenty of opportunities for networking & open discussion. 

After the event there will be a short ride to look at an historic bridge and a famous cycling location (as yet undisclosed, but a treat!)
