CEMEX ride for RoadPeace

Two CEMEX employees have cycled 600 miles to raise awareness of road safety and to raise funds for RoadPeace, the national charity for road crash victims.

Stuart Keighley and Al Laverty of CEMEX Readymix Central region cycled from the their Uddingston office near Glasgow to the Thorpe office near Heathrow in June over the course of five days, calling at three CEMEX offices along the way.

The chair of RoadPeace, Cynthia Barlow, has been involved with the charity ever since her daughter was killed in 2000 in a collision with a CEMEX lorry in London.

Cynthia also sits on the Cyclists’ Defence Fund board of trustees as an observer.

Stuart, Readymix Regional Director, said “CEMEX has come a long way in cyclist safety awareness with regular driver training, fitting safety features to our vehicles that will aid the driver and helping to educate cyclists about safe cycling around large goods vehicles. But there is still a long way to go, which is why we are doing this ride,”

“We want to raise awareness amongst our driver community in particular, there are still so many incidents on the roads that we can’t be complacent. The ride will be hard, but nowhere near as hard as coping with the death of a loved one in a road accident.”
