Thursday morning on October 7 was a bonny spring day, brightened even further by the ‘Hi Vis Giveaway’, where free high-visibility gear was gifted to UC pedestrians and cyclists. The Hi Vis Giveaway was initiated by Dr. Emma De Lacy, and was funded by a
Vice-Chancellor’s Health, Safety and Wellbeing Award. The Sustainability Office provided logistical and communications support. Items included high-visibility pack covers and spoke reflectors.
Stock was exhausted by 8:20am at one giveaway site, demonstrating the value cyclists and pedestrians place on their safety and their commitment to fossil-fuel-free, sustainable transport. If you missed out, the BikeWise shop sells a whole range of hi visibility/safety products at rock-bottom prices (e.g. pack covers cost just $8). For under $20 you can deck yourself out like a sparkling Christmas tree.
