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.

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

Advice for Beginners

Since the beginning of lockdown, Cycling has for many become a new hobby and/or transport of choice. Cycling might seem a little daunting if you haven’t/don’t cycle regularly, or if indeed it is new to you. With a few tips and advice for beginners, there is no reason that cycling cannot become a lifelong habit.

Cycle training for adults and children

Besides providing Bikeability training in Schools and Colleges, we also run Bikeability training courses during school holidays, weekends and at various holiday schemes. These are of a group and individualised nature and can also be adapted to be fully inclusive for both adult and child.

These include sessions for children and adults, from complete beginners through to those looking to gain confidence riding on the road.

Bikeability Levels 1,2 and 3 are available at these sessions also.
Uniformed Organisations and Youth Groups, can also book these sessions for their members if required

Dr Bike

A series of ‘pop up’ style Dr Bike sessions are run throughout the year across the Borough of Dudley. They are community-based events which enable the public to bring along their bike/s and have a trained bike mechanic check it over.

Any adjustments or minor repairs made are completed free of charge and in discussion with the bike’s owner.
The service is provided free of charge and supports the drive for sustainable travel. 

The events are manned by Dr Bike trained mechanics, Bikeability Cycle Trainers, Road Safety Officers/Assistants.

There is also the opportunity at these events to discuss all things cycles and cycling with the staff manning the event and to take bookings and enquiries for Cycle Training and Road Safety for groups and individuals.

West Midlands Cycle Hire

People who live and work in Stourbridge and the surrounding area can benefit from the West Midlands Cycle Hire Scheme, where distinctive grey and green bikes are available in docking stations placed at key locations in and around the Stourbridge area.

Approximately 70 bikes across 9 docking station locations have been installed, with the potential for wider roll-out to other areas in the future.
