PortBUG: Our Last ‘Be Safe, Be Seen’ Seminar! Wed 20th June, 4pm.


In collaboration with Port Adelaide/Enfield Council the PortBUG will once again be running a freeBikeSA/MAC ‘Be Safe, Be Seen’cycling safety seminar (leaflet attached).

When: 4-5pm, Wednesday 20th June.
Where: Port Adelaide Town Hall, 32 Nile St, Port Adelaide.

Parents & Students: We’ve set the time for this session after school to make it easier for students to attend. So parents – if your kids want to ride to school, encourage them to come along. This may well be your last opportunity to attend one of these valuable 30 minute presentations as it appears that MAC will no longer be funding them after June this year!

The sessions offer key facts re. the types and locations of the most frequent accidents leading to cycling casualties, and the most effective strategies for avoiding them. This program is designed for both highly experienced riders as well as those new to commuting by bike – and simply aims to reduce the risk of road crash injury to cyclists. You’d be surprised to know that experienced cyclists are over-represented in crash statistics!

The seminar will begin at 4pm sharp, with questions, discussion and tea and coffee available from 4.30 onwards.

Anyone can attend. Remember that although registration is not necessary, if you do register with Sam at portadbug@gmail.com by June 11th, you will be on the list to receive a free Cycling Safety Gift Pack with:
– saddle bag
– ‘slap band’ ankle reflectors
– a waterproof, hi-vis back pack cover
– stickers
– a 3 month membership of Bike SA.

Special note to Public Service Staff: Those who may be transferring to the new PS offices at Port Adelaide should perhaps consider attending. For many the new Outer Harbour Greenway will make bicycle commuting easy and enjoyable!

Remember – Our presenter needs the numbers beforehand for those wanting the free Safety Gift Pack! If you want one please email Sam indicating names of those attending!

    Please note a correction to the date mentioned in the above post – I got the date (June the 20th) correct but not the day – the 20th is actually a Wednesday, not a Thursday as the post originally suggested. My apologies! Ed.
