Off track

I REFER to the report of the Rothbury Parish Council meeting.

Please do not refer to the track, recently installed along the Coquet in Rothbury, as a cycle track.

It is not. It is a bridleway and always has been.

If you call it a cycle track then people on bikes think they have right of way and shout at pedestrians to get out of the way.

A bridleway is there for all to enjoy whether they be on foot, on horse or on a bike and if we have to have Tarmac across the countryside then at least it should be usable by and of benefit to all.
