Cyclists and horse riders get chance to influence national park plan
Bookmark and Share
Those who love to enjoy the outdoors on mountain bikes or on horseback are to get the chance to help shape the future of recreation in the Dartmoor National Park.

A draft recreation and access strategy has been published by the national park authority and the public has been invited to express its views on the blueprint.

Cyclists and those donning riding helmets may be keen to press for the best facilities and routes for mountain bikes, particularly the last of the four themes mentioned in the document - the aim to promote active lifestyles.

This section - which has a picture of mountain bikers next to the headline - includes plans that riders may already welcome, such as the "provision of sustainable surface for horse riders and cyclists".

It also states the authority should provide "cycle access where access for other users already exists".

The national park authority recently launched a roadshow to tour the towns and cities of Devon to advise of the recreational opportunities the area offers.
