An All-Weather Cycle Path

narrow cycle path gets even thinner to squeeze past a front gate and through a bus shelter

When Nottinghamshire Council conducted a survey into transport mode choices, they discovered that rain was a major deterrent to people considering cycling. As an experiment they have provided this five metre long sheltered cycleway in Radcliffe-on-Trent. If the pilot proves successful in attracting new cyclists then the scheme will be extended to create a continuous covered cycleway to Nottingham.
