Cycle to school on a new path

NORTH Somerset councillors are hoping to encourage pupils to get on their bikes and cycle to a Weston school rather than getting a lift in a car.

NORTH Somerset councillors are hoping to encourage pupils to get on their bikes and cycle to a Weston school rather than getting a lift in a car.

A new cycle path will be installed to provide a link between Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College, in Windwhistle Road, and the Bournville and Oldmixon estates.

The path, which will become part of the National Cycle Network, is intended to complement the cycle parking that has been installed at the school to make cycling a more attractive form of transport.

Numbers of children walking and riding to the school have remained the same since 2002, which is different to schools that have invested in more sustainable transport.
