The first networking session and Q&A hosted by Citycyclecop
and a panel of representatives from the cycling industry has been
hailed a success - having reached over 9,000 people.
Although attendance at the event itself was not as high as hoped
for, those who came joined in some lively debates with enthusiasm,
discussing Advance Stop Line protocol and issues with other road
users and pedestrians.
For Citycyclecop himself, Sgt Antony Wolfson, the message was
all about saving lives and cutting the number of collisions and
fatalities involving cyclists.
Said Antony: “I am delighted that, due to the generosity of
the Willis Group plc, we were able to host our first Twitter event
focussed around cycle safety. Embracing new media enables us
to engage with our communities effectively.”
The BBC’s Robert Elms – a keen cyclist – chaired the evening and
it is hoped that there will be more opportunities for this type of
event in the future.
The City of London Police would like to extend its thanks to
global insurance broker Willis for providing such a superb venue at
the Willis Building, to Robert Elms and the panel for giving so
generously of their time and expertise, and to all those who
contributed to the event.
