What is it? The Cycling Action Network (CAN) are running workshops in Hamilton, designed for drivers, managers, health and safety officers, and trainers wanting to learn more about mitigating on-road difficulties between cyclists and professional drivers. There are eight spaces left.

Cost: Free

When and where:

  • Workshop dates are Wednesday 20 April, Thursday 21 April, Tuesday 26 April, Wednesday, 27 April and Thursday 28 April, 2016
  • 10am to 1.30pm (please arrive at 9.45am)
  • Board Room, Mainfreight Hamilton, 107 Ruffell Road, Burbush, Hamilton


  • Register here and remember to let CAN know if you are bringing your own bicycle and whether you have any medical issues.

Who should attend? Drivers, managers, health and safety officers, and trainers would benefit from this workshop.

Aim of the workshop is to provide:

  • A shared understanding of common on-road experiences including safe following, understanding why cyclists ride to be seen, and safe passing.
  • An opportunity for drivers to experience first-hand what it’s like to be in a bicycle saddle (through a short ride on quiet roads), and the work that is being done to enable cyclists to understand the daily issues facing drivers. Bicycles will be provided, but if you have your own, just let CAN know when you register.

What do you need to bring?

  • A raincoat


  • A light lunch will be provided
  • Let CAN know if you have any dietary requirements
