The footpath between Lanherne and Beach Street is now open.

A very nice quality job adding to the town's infrastructure.

Well done to all involved.

Now wait for all the mountain biker's to take this as a challenge and bump up/down the steps, cynical...yes, I know I am.

Other than a gully parallel to the steps I see no accomodation for cyclist's as was mentioned in earlier recomendation documents pertaining to the construction of this section of the cycle pat h:-

@Paul - looks nice, but i believe not as intially proposed. that having a cycle path seperate from the pedestrian steps or are the cyclist's supposed to use the gulley, just kidding on the last bit.

This is exactly as was always intended. The gully is for cyclists to wheel their bikes up or down the very steep incline.

It is for the cyclists to wheel their bikes up or down the very steep incline. They have one in Bideford on the Tarka trail but very few cyclists use it as it is very difficult to wheel your bike and keep control of it down such a steep gulley - I know as I have tried but only once!
