McGee supports CLOCS at the London Bike Show

McGee is once again proud to be supporting CLOCS – Construction Logistics & Cyclist Safety – at this year’s London Bike Show.

Taking place at London’s ExCeL exhibition centre from today to Sunday 14th February, the event is expected to attract over 50,000 cycling enthusiasts from London and across the UK.

Exhibiting at the show for the second time, the CLOCS stand – LB959 – will feature three heavy trucks which, in conjunction with the Metropolitan Police, will be used to demonstrate to cyclists the large areas around big vehicles that are potentially invisible to the driver and some of the improvements CLOCS is pioneering to improve truck safety. The ‘Exchanging Places’ programme pioneered by the Metropolitan Police puts cyclists in the driver’s seat so they can see and appreciate the blind spots.

The stand is being co-funded by McGee and 24 other CLOCS ‘Champions’ – companies from across the construction industry which have signed up to its code of conduct and who are working to improve the safety of their vehicles when operating in congested urban conditions.
