Driver and Manager Workshops

It made me take a look at myself. I’m a better driver around cyclists now, I used not slow down but now I’m even slower & I assess if I’m ok to pass.

All Share the Road workshops give heavy vehicle drivers an understanding of 3 insights to keep people on bikes, and other vulnerable road users, safe. Our videos give some ideas of what drivers can expect to get out of a workshop. The key insights are:

  • Driving behind a cyclist? Leave plenty of space
  • Cyclists ride further out from the kerb and parked cars because it’s safer
  • When you pass a cyclist, leave a buffer of space between you

We run workshops with complimentary messages for people on bikes so that they stay safe when they are near heavy vehicles
