Council update on cycling improvements between Surbiton and Kingston

The final phases of the Surbiton to Kingston works are now underway. The Surbiton to Kingston route is aimed at improving connectivity on bike and foot between the two centres and includes a number of roads in Surbiton.

Works on Avenue Elmers and Palace Road were completed in February 2017 and a new one-way cycle lane on St Mark's Hill was opened in April 2017. New signage was installed at the end of September 2017 for the permanent traffic restriction on Surbiton Crescent, and permanent traffic islands were installed in December 2017. The road will be resurfaced and signs illuminated in the coming weeks.

Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

You can read more about our training here, and learn more about being a Bikeability Instructor here

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on info@cyclekingston.net with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
