RoSPA’s second national Family Safety Week (2-7 March 2015) will focus on the theme of ‘Safer Cycling’. Martin Roberts, from Homes under the Hammer, and the double Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell OBE, will launch the Week at an event at Queensbridge School in Birmingham.
A different aspect of cycling safety will be covered on each day during the Week. On Tuesday the focus will be on the importance of choosing the right-sized bike for a child. Wednesday will look at cycling to school, Thursday will cover cycling to work and on Friday the spotlight will be on leisure cycling. The week will conclude on Saturday when the focus will be on sharing the road.
