It’s time for University cyclists to ‘Brighten Up’

The University of Nottingham is launching their ‘Brighten Up’ campaign to encourage staff and students to be safe and be seen when cycling in the autumn and winter months. A series of events funded by the University will be held on campus next week:

  • Wednesday 26 October 12pm – 2pm – Jubilee Campus, Exchange Building
  • Wednesday 26 October 12pm – 2pm – University Park Campus, Portland Building
  • Thursday 27 October 12pm – 2pm – Kings Meadow Campus, Foyer
  • Friday 28 October 12pm – 2pm – Queens Medical Centre, Medical School Building
  • Friday 28 October 12pm – 2pm – Sutton Bonington, The Barn

RideWise instructors will be available to give advice on lighting, hi visibility clothing and cycling in the damp and dark.  Staff and students attending will be able to collect hi visibility equipment and free lights provided by the University. If you want similar advice, watch our video.

Gavin Scott, Environment Manager said “cycling is a big part of life here at Nottingham University and it is really important that our staff and students stay safe.  Events and activities such as this are a great way for us to support and advise both regular and new cyclists.”

RideWise also provide cycle training across Nottingham through their cycle centres, group training and one to one support. For more information, visit the RideWise website.

This is great and well done for promoting, however yet again we are missed here at City Campus. There is a good number of people that cycle here to City and we deserve the same. Please please please add a date to your list for City. It is unfair that we ALWAYS get missed. Thanks 🙂

Any chance of our staff and students in Derby benefiting from ‘Brighten Up’?
