Codes of Conduct
We expect all road and path users within the Mole Valley area to act considerately and conscientiously at all time.
Certain rules of the Highway Code are targeted specifically at cyclists, some of which are laws. Make sure you know which parts of the Highway Code apply to you when on your bike.
The Surrey Hills AONB has also published a code of conduct for mountain bikers. This encourages them to enjoy cycling safely whilst protecting the environment and showing consideration for those around them (see 'Downloads').
The British Horse Society, in association with British Cycling has produced a code of conduct for horse riders and cyclists. This encourages equestrians and cyclists to co-exist harmonisiously and safely when riding in close proximity (see 'Downloads').
