Cycle Swap - cab and bus drivers get lessons in cycling in Reading

Inspired by the phrase 'putting the shoe on the other foot', Cycling UK Cycling Devleopment Officer Javed Saddique is planning to deliver cycle training to professional drivers in Reading in an effort to get them to understand how road conditions affect cyclists.

Cycle Swap will start with an awareness exercise involving cab and bus drivers in Reading. Participants will be given cycling awareness skills throughout the morning and in the afternoon they will be provided with helmet cameras to document how they navigate through the varied conditions in Reading.  This exercise will raise awareness and help build a better relationship between road users and cyclists.
