Mes­sage to cy­clists

Midwest Times - - NEWS -

A road safety mes­sage by the City of Greater Ger­ald­ton is urg­ing cy­clists to stay off some coun­try roads as trucks hit the high­ways for the an­nual endof-year har­vest.

The video, pro­duced by Dragon­fly Me­dia, shows a ly­cra-clad cy­clist rid­ing along a coun­try road as two road trains ap­proach.

A shot of one of the road trains over­tak­ing the cy­clist is fol­lowed by aerial footage of the two road trains pass­ing by in op­po­site di­rec­tions.

The ad closes with the mes­sage “don’t get cleaned up in the har­vest”, and a call to avoid rid­ing on har­vest roads from Oc­to­ber un­til the end of the year.

Back­ers of the mes­sage in­clude CBH Group, State Gov­ern­ment agen­cies, BTEC Hire, Ger­ald­ton Triathlon Club and Spokes Cy­cle Club.
