New Cycling Lecture Series Successfully Launched In London Yesterday

Last night saw the launch of PTRC’s  brand new 12 week evening lecture series: Cycling for Transport: a technical, society-focused and policy based overview.


The series aims to provide attendees with a broad range of best practice examples from the UK, Europe and the rest of the world, and to enhance technical expertise on the subject. Last night’s introductory lecture was delivered by Transport Specialist Consultant Alix Stredwick. Alix gave a general introduction to the course and then focussed on cycling related policies. 


Interactive sessions generated an excellent buzz and set the scene for an engaging and stimulating series. There’s still an opportunity to join the series and benefit from hearing leading experts from the world of cycling, including:


- Professor John Parkin (South Bank University)

- Alex Sully (Alex Sully Consulting)

- Jim Davis (Cycling Embassy of Great Britain)

- Dr James Woodcock (Centre for Diet & Activity Research Cambridge) 

- Dr Rachel Aldred (University of Westminster)

- Philip Darnton (formerly of Cycling England).


Attendance for the remainder of  the series is at the discounted standard rate of £180 plus VAT and CILT/Local Authority/Voluntary of Charity sector: £130 plus VAT 


Please note the above rate applies to individuals who wish to attend the whole series and to a  “Rover ticket” which can be used by different members of a team.
