On this morning’s route there were loads of policemen handing out leaflets to cyclists around the Hyde Park Corner area. I took one and shoved it in my pocket to read later.
Unfortunately, the leaflet isn’t very clear and it could do with some proper sub-editing. (I’m an editor, so I’m picky about these things *grin*) But it appears to be aimed at raising the spatial awareness of cyclists. This is what it says:
Cyclists and Pedestrians V Large Goods Vehicles
Working in partnership with Birds Groupage Services Limited and Cemex UK, we invite you inside, both an articulated and rigid lorry cab to give you the heads up on the driver’s view.
One day this may just save your life.
Horse Guards Parade, London SW1.
Monday 12 – Thursday 15 November, 08.30 to 18.30
