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 every 3 months, usually held at MVDC's offices at Pippbrook in Dorking. 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.
