See below information I have received from a member of the Lawn working group. I feel free to put it on here as I made a point that any information I received I would share with other members of the general public. "We haven’t had any members of the public attend/listen in to our meetings but I know the meetings are being recorded and notes made plus of course they are open and ...

@burneside - i should have included an irony alert. @ZIGGY - thanks for providing the clarification for those that were unaware of the law. it’s also legal, obviously, to cycle on a shared use footpath.

An interesting artical in this months Saga magazine. Cycling on a pavement or public footpath is forbidden in the UK, but it's legal on a towpath or bridleway. Cyclists are advised to give way to pedestrians and horse riders, though, as a matter of safety and courtesy.

It is a legal requirment to have a bell on a bike but very new cyclist's do and no one enforces it, but a a motorist has to have a horn and it has to be working to obtain a MOT.

I agree with Deedoodle's last sentence. Last Sunday I walked along the joint cycle/pedestrian path from Cockwood to D. Warren.  Not one cyclist who approached me from behind used a bell to alert me to their presence. I am not anti-cyclist. Far from it. But I have had close encounters when using joint paths.

'This will provide a safe family-friendly cycling and walking route'. In my experience of using these mixed paths the walker has to keep on looking behind for impending cycles coming passed at speed. In most instances you may get a feverish bell being fired off and other times just a whoosh as they just miss you as they go passed. The walk/cycle path bridge on the Exe opposite the ...
