Find out about Bikeability courses across Surrey
Bikeability courses teach cycling skills including hazard awareness, how and when to signal to other road users, passing cars and side roads, and turning in and out of road junctions. Courses are often taught by schools but did you know there are also courses available during the school holidays?
Courses available in Surrey during Easter
The level two courses for under 18s run for three mornings at Fordbridge Fire Station in Ashford, and for three afternoons at Camberley Fire Station. Both courses run from Monday 6 April and cost £40.
Further courses are also being run at Dorking, Guildford and Fordbridge fire stations in May half term and the summer holidays.
For more details of the courses and to book, visit the Surrey Cycle Training website.
Bikeability in schools
Bikeability is also provided through many of the county's primary and secondary schools – 16,000 pupils are trained each year. For more details you can visit the Cycle Training In Schools - Road Safety and Sustainable Travel For Schools webpage.

Promoting cycling is key to helping to tackle climate change and improving air quality in Surrey as more than 40 per cent of the county's carbon emissions come from private cars. Cycling is also beneficial for physical and mental health and wellbeing.
