The Peregrine Path

Monmouth to Symonds Yat East

firefox Sustrans has opened a level riverside route along the former railway line between Hadnock Road, Monmouth, and Symonds Yat East.

The path is an example of how such a route can blend harmoniously with the environment, providing a safe and healthy alternative and encouraging cars to be left at home.

Two Tunnels Greenway

Currently being built in Bath

The Two Tunnels route will use an old rail trackbed to burrow beneath Combe Down - the high ground south of the city - creating an almost level and direct route between the city centre of Bath and the Midford valley, 2½ miles south of the city.

One of the reasons why I am in favour of a valley floor cycle path is that I want cyclists to be able to enjoy the Wye Valley in the same way that car drivers can but without posing a risk to themselves or other road users.
