Liz Ashburn, Chair of the South Lakes Cycle Forum, explains her support for the Towpath Trail following a presentation from LCRP.
‘The Lancaster Canal Towpath Trail would provide a fantastic traffic free, level cycle route for families, tourists and other recreational cyclists, winding through attractive and interesting countryside giving access to several tourist destinations on the way. It has great potential to encourage cycle tourism, reduce the use of private car transport for family days out and not least will give a long and leisurely off road route for beginner cyclists, whether children or adults. South Lakeland and north Lancashire present great cycling for proficient, fairly fit cyclists, but relatively few easy, safe routes for new and less confident cyclists and families, both locals and visitors to the area’.
We couldn’t agree more, thanks Liz!
