Cyclists are invited to pick up free safety advice and have their bikes checked at a series of drop-in events being held next week.
The events are part of the annual Be Safe, Be Seen campaign promoted by North East Lincolnshire Council, working in partnership with Cofely.
A series of cycle safety events are being delivered with the Grimsby Cycle Hub to promote a greater understanding of how to keep yourself safe when cycling, especially as the darker nights are drawing in.
The Cycle Hub is inviting members of the public to bring their bike to the ‘Be Safe, Be Seen’ sessions where a trained mechanic will check it to make sure it’s all in good working order.
You can also pick up free LED cycle lights and other hi-visibility items to keep you safe and seen whilst out on your bike, subject to availability.
The Cycle Safety events will be held on the following dates and at the locations shown below:
Monday 19 October – Highgate Children’s Centre, Trinity Road, Cleethorpes (3.15pm to 5pm)
Tuesday 20 October – Immingham Swimming Pool, Princess Street, Immingham (4.30pm to 6pm)
Wednesday 21 October – Freeman Street Resource Centre, Kent Street, Grimsby (4.30pm to 6pm)
Don’t worry if you can’t make it to one of these events you can still pick up your free LED cycle lights and hi-visibility items (subject to availability) from the Grimsby Cycle Hub between Thursday 22 October and Friday 30 October 2015.
The Grimsby Cycle Hub can be found next to Grimsby Town Railway Station and is from open 8am to 6pm from Monday to Friday and 9am to 5pm on Saturday.Leave a comment
