Kendal’s Riverside Leisure Route-January meeting

The January meeting at The County Hall about the proposals for Kendal’s Riverside Leisure Route was very well attended, it was heartening to see so many cyclists in attendance, especially the large number of KDCS members.

The meeting left both officers and councillors in no doubt as to the strength of feeling expressed by the large number of cyclists - of the importance of not only the Riverside Route, but also the dire state of the surface of the existing Canal Cycle track and the need to improve the surface.

Most of the cyclists present felt strongly that a solution be found to route the Riverside Leisure Route over Gooseholme, which most cyclists seemed to think is far more preferable to both pedestrians and cyclists than the New Road proposal.

KDCS would like your views.
