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?

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.
