Welcome to the Mole Valley Cycling Forum
Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) - A consultation on this is due to start later this year by Surrey County Council in partnership with Mole Valley District Council and their contractor Atkins. In the mean time this is a good opportunity to log suggestions and improvements to cycling infrastructure in our area on the Commonplace Map they are using.
Read our most recent response to possible plans for redevelopment of the Ranmore BMX/MTB trail. As subsequently the proposal was rejected at the Council meeting, a group of interested parties are now putting together a plan to manage the trail.
Thinking about getting an electric bike? Here are a couple of links that might be of use: https://www.cyclinguk.org/article/guide-electric-bikes and https://www.atob.org.uk/electric-bicycle-zone/
The Mole Valley Cycling Forum comprises a cross-section of Mole Valley residents linked by a desire to facilitate the use of bikes for recreation and as a means of transport.
Our aim is to encourage cycling in Mole Valley
- as a key component of an integrated transport system,
- as a highly sustainable transport mode and
- as a healthy and fun activity for all the family
We are supported by officers from Mole Valley District Council (unfortunately Surrey County Council no longer has a Cycling Officer) and meet regularly with them to discuss issues concerning cyclists and pedestrians in the area. We currently have a formal meeting around every 3 months, and are currently aiming to alternate between locations in Dorking and Leatherhead, depending upon availability. More details are provided below.
Use our site to find out about what we are doing and how you may help us, to find some cycle routes off the beaten track and to let us know about danger points or other problems in your local area. The Mole Valley Cycling Forum exists to help you make cycling a safer and more enjoyable activity in Mole Valley.
If you live or work in or near Mole Valley and have an active interest in cycling and cycling issues then why not come and join us?
We need more voices on the Forum to ensure that priority is given to improving facilities for cyclists in Mole Valley.
We discuss cycling issues and develop ideas for improving cycling facilities in the district.
We will be holding an informal meeting on Thursday 10th February at 7.00pm at The Stepping Stones, Westhumble.
Our next formal meeting is scheduled for Thursday 17th March at 7.00pm at Park House, Leatherhead (subject to confirmation).
