John Gosling, Managing Director of TJ Transport Limited working with Portsmouth City Council and the Police, has arranged an event for cyclists and lorry drivers to get together to learn more about the issues we each face.
I believe this to be a sincere attempt to improve cycle safety. It's also an excellent opportunity to counter the media's attempts to portray a state of war between cyclists and motorists.
I'm told that as well as an opportunity to see the view from a cab and talk to HGV drivers, there will be freebies on offer! and discounts on bike security equipment. PompeyBUG will also be running Dr Bike sessions.
I'll be leading an easy ride to the event from The Spring Centre starting at 9.30. More details here.
