Live presentation will discuss ‘Cycling for All’ in Hounslow

Fatima Ahmed, road safety manager at the London Borough of Hounslow, is delivering a live presentation later this month as part of Road Safety GB’s online cycling event.

The three-week event, titled ‘More cycling, safer cyclists: how can we make it safer for more people to cycle, more often?’, will be aired free-to-all during June 2021, commencing Monday 7 June.

Fatima’s presentation, titled Cycling for All, takes place at 11am on Thursday 17 June. Registration is free-of-charge and now open

It is anticipated Fatima will present for around 20 minutes, before inviting questions from attendees.

This session will be recorded and made available at a later date for anyone unable to attend on the day.

Fatima Ahmed was part of Cycling UK’s 100 Women in Cycling 2019 list for her instrumental role in getting more people on bikes in Hounslow.

Back in 2016/17 there were just under 100 people attending Hounslow’s adult cycle training sessions, but under Fatima’s watch participants jumped to 1,686 by 2019.

Encouragingly, more than 80% of the participants are women and from ethnic minority backgrounds, with a huge age range from 16-82 years.

Fatima says Hounslow is doing everything possible to create an environment for inclusive cycling, and will explain this during her presentation.

Fatima is also a panellist for a Question Time session taking place on Thursday 24 June (11am – 12pm).

Registration is open for this session, with further panellists including:

  • Rachel Aldred, Professor of Transport, Westminster University
  • Michael Corden, Head of Training, Cycle Confident and BikeRight
  • David Davies, Executive Director, PACTS

Attendees will be able to ask questions during the session itself – or submit them in advance.
