Reading University Sustainability Day
My Journey joined Reading University’s sustainability day in early November, promoting cycling alongside their bike sale for students and free Dr Bike checks.
We provided information and advice on safe cycling and handed out free high-vis rucksack covers and water bottles… some even wanted to take snapbands to increase their visibility on the bike by attaching to the handlebars or round their coat sleeves. With the hour going back and light levels low, it’s even more important to use hi-vis, switch on lights and ensure drivers see riders as early as possible.
Despite a chilly day and the fact that they had rather foolishly booked the event in reading week!... we still managed to attract a fair amount of attention with those interested in bikes to get around the campus and further afield with routes to follow on our cycle maps.
