Cycling Auditor - Melbourne - 2020
This training has been postponed due to the ongoing covid situation. We will advise as soon as we are able to reschedule the program. To register your interest please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Take a look at this short video from our inaugural Cycling Auditor training in May 2019:
This novel auditor training will provide participants the opportunity to experience first-hand how infrastructure impacts cyclists.
Attendees will be provided a bicycle or e-bike (or they may bring their own) and will be guided on a cycling tour that highlights a variety of cycling treatments both on and off-road. This hands-on approach will give attendees insight into how this vulnerable road user experiences the metropolitan network and the hazards they face. Moreover, being actively involved in the training course will sharpen attendee’s skills in identifying hazards and providing solutions for cycling infrastructure.
Stops will be made along the journey for the group to pause and reflect on the ride. Experienced facilitators will
provide insight and communicate what is ‘best practice’ for delivering cycling infrastructure. Participants will be encouraged to share their own experiences of the ride whilst developing their understanding of what treatments are available.
Strengthen auditor ability to reliably and effectively:
Appraise whether infrastructure used by cyclists is safe
Identify specific features of infrastructure which raise safety risk for cyclists
Communicate audit findings
Understand the role of auditing in the Safe System approach to cyclist safety
Gain personal user experience of the safety risks faced by cyclists
