Great job by Lafarge Canada (a very responsible company) to help improve safety for all of us who ride a bike now and then (10% of trips to work in Vancouver).

Lafarge brought a truck and three people to the Bike to Work Week station at Ontario and Terminal (Science World) on Tuesday.

Why??

The company is concerned about safety, and helping people who ride bikes to learn about blind spots.

I spent a few minutes with a Lafarge driver, who put me in the cab and demonstrated that drivers have blind spots and limited visibility spots around them.

Good idea to stay out of those.  Generally, if you can’t see the driver, the driver can’t see you.

And good on Lafarge for making such a big effort to get this message out and help improve safety for us all.
