      Transformer les rails du train de Wakefield en piste cyclable ?

      Transformer les rails du train de Wakefield en piste cyclable ? Les clochettes de vélo pourraient remplacer les sifflets du train à vapeur Hull-Chelsea-Wakefield. Une résidente de Chelsea a lancé une pétition pour que le chemin de fer, qui n'est plus en service depuis trois ans, devienne un sentier multiusage.

      I simply think that a safe route is very important for cyclists/ walkers.

      I am a courier and having this path would be beneficial, whenever I have to drop off a package in hull, this will be easier and safer for myself and my colleauges.

      I go to either Chelsea or Wakefield at least once or twice a week and I would love to have the option of biking rather than driving in fair weather. It would both help to keep me in shape and to reduce greenhouse gasses. Highway 105 is simply too dangerous.

      I think the bike trail could be enjoyed by more people winter and summer than the trainaccomodates.

      I cycle to work in Ottawa, I want my children to cycle when they grow up. This would be a gorgeous bike path that will attract its own kind of tourism.
