Bike Train in Action in Hove Feb 2011
8 September 2011. Bike Train plans to start weekly rides to Brighton's Dorothy Stringer and Varndean Schools from tomorrow 9 September, and to various forthcoming events including White Night and Lewes Bonfire Night.

Organiser Duncan Blinkhorn said: "Bike Train is a group cycle ride which creates a friendly, assertive, hi-vis, safety-in-numbers presence on busy roads, to enable more people to cycle safely.

"We especially want to reach students, parents and staff at Stringer and Varndean schools and college and at Sussex and Brighton Universities."

Until now, Bike Trains have only operated on the Lewes Road in Brighton and Hove, running from the central location of The Level along the Lewes Road to the Brighton and Sussex Universities in Falmer.
