A cycle lane is a marked space on the road to create a safer riding space for cyclists alongside the kerb.
Cycle Routes are principally indicated by signs and markings. They may be either on the carriageway, on footways either shared with or segregated from pedestrians, or specially designated cycle paths.
Information for cyclists in the Highway Code (including how to use cycle specific facilities) can be accessed via the Directgov website.
Cycling is fun, keeps us fit and helps keep the air we breathe cleaner. The Road Safety and 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. For further information please visit the cycling web pages.
If you notice a problem with a cycle lane, please tell us about it using our online contact form.
Cyclists may not ride on pavements unless there are signs to indicate that they may do so.
Although Dudley is rather hilly in places there are plenty of cycling opportunities for all abilities and ages. For further information, please visit the Cycle Maps web page.
The Council’s own Cycle Strategy aims to develop the network of segregated cycle routes across the Borough. This will make use of canal towpaths, disused railway lines and public rights of way in order to avoid the area’s steep hills and heavily trafficked roads wherever possible.
