During our Neighbourhood Development Meeting yesterday I realised that although we have a footpaths maintenance group, we don’t have an equivalent for cyclists.
The area surrounding Long Ashton features a large number of cycling routes, both for commuters and cross-country biking, and they could probably benefit from a dedicated group assisting to maintain and improve them.
For example, Ashton Hill Plantation apparently needs waymarking, but there is no budget for doing this. A volunteer group might spend a day erecting waymarkers to improve the routes, at only minimal cost.
As an aside, another idea I put forward was to see whether we could create a continuous cycle route between Ashton Hill Plantation and Ashton Court. This is the kind of project that a volunteer group could help the council to see through to completion.
Is anyone interested in getting involved in this?
