Cyclists – brighten up, be safe and be seen!

October 15th, 2015

The University is once again launching a Brighten Up campaign to encourage staff and students to be safe and be seen when cycling in the autumn and winter months.

The campaign aims to remind University students and staff to ‘Brighten Up’ while cycling – before daylight hours are reduced on Sunday 25 October. A series of events, funded by the University, will be held across our campuses next week:

Monday 19 October 12-2pm – Medical School Foyer, Queen’s Medical Centre
Tuesday 20 October 12-2pm – Portland Atrium, University Park
Wednesday 21 October 12-2pm – The Barn, Sutton Bonington
Thursday 22 October 12-2pm – King’s Meadow Campus restaurant
Friday 23 October 12-2pm – Exchange Building, Jubilee Campus

University staff and RideWise instructors will be available to give advice on lighting, high-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, Nottinghamshire Police and members of the Sustainable Travel Collective (the Big Wheel and RideWise).

For similar advice, watch Ridewise’s safe winter cycling video or take a look at our Brighten Up page.
