Dudley Council
Dudley Skyline

Cycling is fun, keeps us fit and helps keep the air we breathe cleaner. The road safety & travel awareness team provides training, advice and information to cyclists of all ages and types.

We also produce route maps and promote cycling, taking part in Bike Week and other events.

The Travel Plan for cycling and walking is are about encouraging more sustainable transport modes, as well as considering if there is a real need for some journeys.

Cycle forum

The forum is open to anyone with an interest in cycling and meets four times a year to discuss cycling in Dudley as well as council proposals and strategies that relate to active travel.

Attended by elected members and senior council officers, the forum also facilitates debate on wider issues such as infrastructure, education, training and promotion of cycling.

More details can be found on the Cycle Forum page.

Cycle training for adults and children

Besides providing Bikeability training in schools and colleges we also run holiday schemes for children, group and family sessions and personalised sessions for adults.

There is a also a regular training programme on the first Saturday of the month at Mary Stevens Park. This includes sessions for children and adults, from complete beginners though to those looking to gain confidence riding on the road.

Cycling on towpaths

The canal network provides a great opportunity for leisure cycling, and commuting. You don't need a permit to ride on towpaths, but must follow the guides from the the Canal and River Trust.

Centro cycling charter and public consultation

Centro wants to hear from people from across the West Midlands region about cycling to create a Cycling Charter. Find out more about the West Midlands Cycling Charter and take part in an online questionnaire.

West Midlands Cycle Hire

People who live and work in Stourbridge and the surrounding area will benefit from the West Midlands Cycle Hire Scheme later this month (April) where distinctive grey and green bikes will be available in docking stations, placed at key locations in and around the Stourbridge area.

Initially, approximately 70 bikes across 9 docking station locations will be installed, with the potential for wider roll-out to other areas in the future.
