Free road safety talk and cycling training for Ukrainian refugees in the city

We’re inviting Ukrainian refugees to take advantage of the support we offer to keep people safe on our roads.

Next week, we’ll be holding a free road safety and cycling session dedicated to people who have fled the war in Ukraine and are now living in Brighton & Hove.

It will take place in Hove Park from 10am to 2pm on Friday 29 July.

The event will comprise of a talk (with an interpreter) about the road safety and left-hand traffic followed by a practical course for beginner cyclists. 

The cycling course is optional. Those who don’t feel confident enough to take part can still attend the talk on road safety.

If you would like to join the active session but do not own a bike, please email in advance as we might be able to provide a bike for you.

If you have any questions or want to book your place at the event, please email:

You must pre-book your space to attend either part of the event.

Supporting refugees 

Councillor Steve Davis, Co-Chair of the Environment, Transport and Sustainability committee said: “We have a proud history of inclusivity and welcoming people to our city. This is just another example of how we can support those who have fled the terrible war in Ukraine.

“Having to move to a different country can be very difficult, especially dealing with different traffic rules and movements. I’m sure this course will give people the confidence they need to travel around and explore Brighton & Hove safely.”
