Uber Eats partners with Cycling UK on road safety

Uber Eats has partnered with Cycling UK, the national cycling charity, to help further increase cycling awareness and education for riders, couriers and the general public.

As part of Bike Week, the charity has created five instructional videos and written guides which will be shared with thousands of couriers using the Uber Eats app across the UK.

The videos feature information on road safety and tips on how to maintain a bike, as well as instruction on road positioning, how to approach junctions, signalling and awareness of other road users.

The written guides aim to educate cyclists with little or no mechanical experience on how to prepare their bikes to ride safely, how to fix basic problems they may encounter when cycling and essential tools needed to fix common issues.

Toussaint Wattinne, general manager for Uber Eats in the UK, said: “At Uber Eats the safety of couriers and other road users is a top priority. It is great to be working with Cycling UK to increase cycling awareness and education for thousands of couriers across more than 100 towns and cities in the UK.”

James Scott, director of behaviour change at Cycling UK, added: “We’re leaders in helping cyclists improve their skills and confidence, so we’re delighted to be working with Uber Eats, guiding thousands of couriers on riding safely and confidently while also giving them the skills they need to keep their bikes running.”
