Visual resources

Postby soundcycling » 8 Aug 2016, 8:55am

Hi all
Can anyone give me a pointer to good quality (or any!) visual resources (photos, diagrams or videos) that I can use in a Big Bike Revival presentation on Essential Roadcraft for Cyclists on 16.8?

I want to show examples of National Standards best (and worst) practice. E.g. is this cyclist in the correct road position? How could this cyclist improve their safely? I have so far drawn a blank on the internet. Bikeability seems to have no resource library and anyway is only aimed at children. Cycling UK seems to have nothing. It seems a reasonable request. Pictures are much more succinct and clear than a wordy description. I hope to hear from you. Many thanks

if you want plan views of moves then I guess you could 'borrow' them from 'Cycle Craft'. Although I've not read it recently so can't remember exactly what was in it.

Can't remember ever seeing any film of people doing stuff properly or badly

I'm interested in this again right now. British Cycling's "Commute Smart" videos give me the heebie-jeebies, especially telling people to default to riding in line with the passenger side of cars, which is not what Bikeability or Cyclecraft says.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... 6yxgLtpM8i seem mostly OK technically but there aren't many of them and they look rather spartan and dated.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... iOLZxwlHv8 are better-produced but apparently Bikeability Scotland is for children, so it features small children in H&H which may make them inappropriate for some settings. The introduction also seems very much like talking down to small children.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jv6uNn3 ... Tt3JV9EHPK is a bit better but seems to be a one-off. There are a few other one-offs, including some from county councils, which aren't as good.

Are there any good UK cycle touring/transport skills videos? Maybe under a different keyword which I'm not guessing?

The main target audience is children, but there's no reason a competent child can't show an adult how to do something. The H&H is political pragmatism: if they don't put it in some of the LAs Cycling Scotland need on board will have a Strop.

However, The biggest problem with the Bikeability Scotland ones is they exist in a parallel world with no other traffic, so much signalling your intention to empty space and none of the Really Important Stuff, which is interacting with other road users.
