We are developing a network of cycleways and cycle paths to link together the main areas of the borough with locations such as local schools, retail areas and industry, as well as to the surrounding area. Many of the new cycleways and cycle paths which have recently been added to the growing network have been paid for by the developers of new housing areas, retail parks and business estates.
The network meets the aspirations of the council's 'Active Travel Study' which seeks to increase the use of cycling as a safe and efficient mode of transport, carrying with it the added benefits of better health and saving money.
Cycle paths and cycleways are shared with other users such as pedestrians (and sometimes equestrians), and all users should treat each other with courtesy as they travel. This includes keeping dogs under control, and keeping to the correct side of the path where a white centre line separates cyclists from other users.
