The Sidmouth Cycling Campaign has received nearly 100 replies so far to the questionnaire issued as part of its launch.
Results so far:
- More than half cycle more than 10 miles per week.
- 76% cycle for leisure with 40% also cycling to the shops and 14% cycling to work.
- Over half of respondents cited a lack of safe routes as the main reason putting them off cycling. Over half of respondents wanted a cycle route over The Bowd to Tipton and 35% wanted a cycle route to Sidbury.
- 22% said that a 20mph speed limit and better law enforcement would make them feel safer. Other suggestions included more cycle stands, improvements to The Byes cycle route and some specific changes to one-way streets to make cycling safer and easier.
It's still not too late to let the campaign know your views and ideas for improvements. The information-gathering exercise will be open until 31 December.
