Cape Town man Ryan Fowler has used a recent altercation with a motorist to raise awareness about cycling safety.
He is organising a short ride up Rosmead Avenue at 9am on Saturday morning in a bid to inspire humanity, respect and kindness among all road users.
Fowler was punched in the face by a motorist last week and chose to track the driver down for a meet-up, instead of laying charges.
The incident happened at an intersection, after Fowler confronted the man about driving dangerously close to him.
Fowler says the aim of the ride is to raise positive awareness about cycle safety.
He also wants to make motorists aware that that they should only pass cyclists when there is one metre or more between them.
The ride will start at Corner Ottery Road and Rosmead Avenue.
Cyclists are encouraged to come wearing a sign or label that describes them e.g 'Dad', 'Husband','Friend' or 'Daughter'.

I feel it's my duty to educate motorists when I have the opportunity so I approached this guy when I caught with him at a traffic light.— Ryan Fowler
We had discussions that were uncomfortable, apologies were said and we got together for a beer.— Ryan Fowler
Let's try and see each other as, not just cyclists or motorists, but as human beings, as people, as dads, husbands and whatever we are in life.— Ryan Fowler
I'm not just a cyclist. I'm a dad.— Ryan Fowler
