Unfriendly signs

BUDLEIGH SALTERTON - is it probably the most cycling unfriendly town in the South West?

At a time when most towns and cities in the South West seem to be encouraging people to get out on their bikes and get healthy, it seems Budleigh Salterton wants to do the opposite.

I have never seen so many “No-cycling” signs around a seaside town before and today was the final straw, when at least two new signs have been printed on the seafront promenade.

Assuming this is council money, have they not got better things to do with it?

What a waste of money - and on a promenade that is easily wide enough to become a shared path.

I think people need to remember that not everybody living in Budleigh Salterton is too old to ride a bike!
