SINGAPORE: OCBC Cycle Singapore Safe Cycling campaign’s theme for this year is respect.
The campaign promotes safe cycling practices and the call for cyclist—friendly rules is timely, in light of the tragic accident that killed two boys in Tampines last month.
This year’s campaign aims to educate young cyclists and raise the level of respect among road users.
Coaching manager for S’pore Cycling Federation Daniel Loy said: "Education is the first step toward a holistic environment for us to cycle safely and to enjoy our sport. This safe cycling campaign is to raise awareness amongst both parties — for the cyclists as well as the other road users. And when everybody understands each other and respects each other, then we’re going to have a better environment for everybody involved."
Into its third year, the Safe Cycling campaign was launched at CHIJ Kellock, with its focus on educating children.
National riders Dinah Chan and Timothy Lim hosted the event, and gave the primary school students tips such as how to wear helmets properly and look out for traffic on the roads.
The students were also given a preview of a safe cycling video produced by prominent local blogger Lee Kin Mun, better known as Mr Brown.
The video is the first of a five—part series on safe cycling tips that Lee will share on YouTube and his own blog.
