Bikeability
We recognise the importance of learning to ride a bike safely for children.

Free cycle training
Many of us haven’t actually set foot or bottom on a bike for years.  Bikes have changed, our bodies have changed and the roads have certainly changed. Cycling proficiency is not all about children any more.

School crossing patrols
School crossing patrols ensure the travel to and from school, for local children, is as safe as possible. Currently we have 120 school crossing patrols in operation covering 100 crossing points.

Road safety guides
Resources for families with information to keep them safe on and around the road.

For the young drivers, which is also relevant to young riders, the Safe Drive Stay Alive event is promoted across the borough.  We also have an exhibition vehicle that travels around the borough as part of our road safety roadshow.  One of the topics covered by this is Two Wheeled Powered Vehicles (TWPV), sharing safety messages with the residents of the borough in areas with higher TWPV collisions.
