I just wanted to email you to to express support for development of the Littlehempston cyclepath. As a “Bikeability” cycle instructor living in Marldon, I regularly cycle to Totnes – Newton Abbot – Torbay to run cycling courses in junior schools.
A Littlehempston cycleroute would be of major benefit to me. I have been hit more than once on the A381, A385 and B road (linking Totnes, Berry Pomeroy and Torbay) by vehicles squeezing between me and oncoming traffic. My strategy now is to ride well out into the carriageway invariably incurring the wrath of impatient motorists – not OK but manageable (but why should I have to put up with this stress?) for an experienced cyclist such as myself but the need for an alternative to this is obvious! Besides the tourist issue, there is the local economy – people like me going to work!
Good luck with the project
