We’ve written about the Glencaple Road before, but as you may have seen on Facebook and Twitter, now someone is taking action about it.
If you haven’t done so already, please sign this petition calling for road improvements, including lowering the speed limit from 60mph to 40 from Kelton village to beyond the houses at Kelton Bank.
As anyone who has cycled on this road will know, you do tend to get many fast and close passes from drivers – we’ve stopped running our summer rides along it, because it really doesn’t feel pleasant to ride along with children. Given this is part of our National Cycle Network, it’s time it was made safer for cyclists, pedestrians, horse riders and local residents.
As we’ll be in the area on Sunday for our Rantin’ Rovin’ Winter Ride, the plan is to stop off at Kelton on the way back to briefly meet the petitioners and publicise their campaign.
