Letter: A new path would be a benefit to all

Benefit to all.
Benefit to all.

A new path would be a benefit to all

It would be interesting to know just how many of the 4,000 ‘protesters’ are either a) local dog owners, b) people who have never walked more than a mile on the track or c) have ever tried to cycle from Ravenscar towards Whitby!

There are miles and miles of under-used footpaths in this area both in the countryside and along the coastal paths but only the Cinder Track provides the opportunity for families to cycle together in the lovely countryside away from dangerous traffic and steep hills.

For the less able-bodied, E- bikes have now become available which means that even more people will be able to enjoy the exhilaration of the bike ride.
