Mike Encourages Residents to Take Bike Safety Seriously


Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, is encouraging residents to pedal down to a local cycling safety event being held on Saturday 17th May.

At the event, one hundred free bells will be given out to cyclists using Brighton & Hoves popular seafront cycle lane in a new initiative to improve safety. The bells, which will be fitted free of charge, will be given away at a cycling safety event at East Street Bastion, which is on the promenade at the bottom of East Street.

Cyclists will be able to have a bell fitted to their bike from 13:00-16:00 and can also pick up advice and information about safer cycling in the city. Road safety advisors from Brighton & Hove City Council will also be talking to pedestrians about keeping safe when crossing the seafront cycle lane, which is used by around 2,000 cyclists every day.

Commenting, Mike said: Cycling is a great way to get around the city, but doing it safely is crucial. As the weather improves as we approach summer, I expect well see even more people taking to their bikes. I hope that cyclists will take heed of the safety advice that is on hand at the cycling event and a lucky 100 will even get a free bell fitted to their bike for them.
