Live performances to drive home road safety message
A series of live performances that aim to raise road safety awareness among young people in Surrey will take place this month.
Safe Drive Stay Alive, an initiative lead by Surrey Fire and Rescue Service, features a series of films and live speakers who recount their stories and tell how they have been affected by being involved in a road crash.
The events also see emergency service workers take to the stage to talk about their experiences of dealing with a road accident.
The performances take place at Dorking Halls throughout November. For more information and details on how to book, visit the Safe Drive Stay Alive website.
Residents to get close-up footage of RideLondon-Surrey cycling stars
Residents will again be able to get up close to some of the world’s best cyclists when they power through Surrey in next Summer’s RideLondon race without leaving their armchairs.
Riders will have cameras attached to their bikes to provide video footage after organisers agreed a three-year deal with Velon to use technology during the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic.
It guarantees that the 11 elite squads involved in Velon, including Britain’s Team Sky, Spain’s Movistar and Australia’s Orica-BikeExchange, will participate.
The race, which is based on the route used for the 2012 Olympics, will be televised by the BBC.
