Stop cycle speed App users from competing on canal towpaths

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!


Cycling speed apps where riders chase targets in excess of 36 kilometres per hour are a major cause for concern along the towpaths of the canal network in England & Wales. Cities such as London, Nottingham, Birmingham & even rural routes are seeing an increase in these dangerous speeds used by cyclists, they will not slow down, dismount or stop for dogs, children, families, walkers & any other towpath users. They expect hard of hearing, deaf, sight impaired & elderly people to move instantly on the ding of a bell or a voice command. 

Towpaths along the canal system are being promoted as a place for everyone, a space to be shared, however this cannot happen if these speed target chasing cyclists are allowed to continue using the towpaths, Sustrans suggest a sensible maximum speed limit for cyclists which we want to be enforced. 

Please sign this petition to give all other towpath users a voice to enable them to continue to use the canal towpaths safely & without fear.
