We teamed up with Wirral Council at the OVO Energy Tour event in Hamilton Square this month to host a #SharedSpace campaign.
With a brightly coloured tent, free safety gear and educational resources for people to take away, our ambassadors were kept incredibly busy (helped by fantastic weather).
The big showstopper was our bike powered smoothie maker! All the children, and a few teens, wanted a go. It was a great opportunity, not only to give a boost to their love of cycling, but also talk to them informally about how they can stay safe when they’re on their bikes.
Our ‘Keep Your Distance’ mat was out, emphasising to drivers how much space a cyclist needs on the road – and quite a few people were surprised.
The key message that we promoted – and will promote wherever we go – was that we all share the roads, and so we all share the responsibility.
One step closer to a safer Merseyside!
