3,312Morgan Hale I cycle 8 miles to work every day and at several point in this journey I feel as though I'm taking my life in my hands due to the reckless drivers on the road, we are in dire need of more cycle paths and better education for drivers, I rode 2000 miles through Europe last year and both the roads, cycle paths and attitude of drivers put us to shame!

3,228David HedgeThis is needed urgently as the main road is too dangerous for cyclists and the lanes are poorly maintained for cyclists (I hit a hole in a lane a few years ago and broke an arm in the subsequent fall)Oct 16, 2017
3,227Robert Smith Having recently arrived in Totnes, I can vouch for the fact that traffic-free and relatively flat routes out of the town are very rare. This route would provide an admirable link with the existing cycle route to Dartington, for those with less confidence on a bike. Oct 15, 2017

3,035Keiko YamamotoI go to Totnes quite often to see families and My partner and I have been considering relocating ourselves to Littlehempston area. As a non driver and keen cyclist I cannot imagine a life totally depending on driving to go anywhere. For the environmental impact reason all the road should have a cycle path that connects to nearing towns and beyond. I cannot believe a town like Totnes has this prob!Nov 12, 2016

3,021Tom GuhaWhat a shame that this bridge is still inaccessible, despite such strong public support. It is obvious that a route for people wishing to cycle and walk would be an asset to the community as a whole - reducing reliance on cars and creating an enjoyable and liveable public space.

I know many other people that would love to cycle to work but will not do so as the roads are too dangerous. I have encouraged my children from a young age to cycle and they love it. This route would enable my children to cycle the area frSep 16, 2015
2,783Natasha JohnsThis would be so beneficial for the area, linking the South Hams to Teignbridge and also providing a valuable missing link in the National Cycle Network. The distance between Newton abbot and Totnes is relatively short but hazardous roads mean that more people chose to avoid cycling in this area. This is a great shame.

Besides being a boon to the growing local cycling community it would also be an incredible boon to tourism in the region. Other countries experience of cycleways have Jul 22, 2015

2,150Paul De'AtheI have as good a geography of this area as well as any outsider having spent some four years at weekends once a month studying at the Devon School of Shiatsu in Littlehempston, and having to navigate some of the the lanes in this area by car. I might have preferred to use a cycle (and train) had I thought I could have done so with a greater degree of safety. As a cyclist I am keen to take advantagJan 28, 2015

2,132Martin PhillipsI used to live in Callington Cornwall,and did a lot of cycling in Devon and Cornwall.

To be less hilly than other routes would enable the less fit to get on their bikes and so improve fitness. To reach Totnes may encourage some who work there to arrive by bike and thus less congestion for the town. The possibility of a trip to Ashburton on the raJan 28, 2015

2,057Anthony GilbertI feel it is important to consider all viable options for any planned cycle ways. Sustrans are in the business of knowing how cycle routes work. The benefits of their proposal are far reaching. Overall costs vs headline price vs benefits in these proposals can be qualitative and quantitative, and both measures should be extended to subjects such as infrastructure, health, environmental and communJan 28, 2015

After 4 years we have just finished about 1/4 of the 2 mile route. To fit within physical constraints we are planning for 1.5m wide bridges and tunnel. Although this will be an extension to well used NCN24 we are confident there should be no undue pedestrian/cyclistJan 11, 2015

1,877Richard WattsTo The Devon County Council, Please do not take the easy way out. Be sensible give the people, yes the people who you represent the chance to use the route that they wish for. The route you support will end in a route that no one uses. Don't continue to waste money on a project that no one wants. Even living in Dorset and a keen supporter, I would certainly come to Devon to use it. Yours Richard Dec 22, 2014

I suffer with hip problems and have been advised that the best exercise for me is to cycle regularly. At the moment there is no safe route for me to take so I am unable to do as much cycling as I should. Please make this route possible for us all.

1,568Cairn HurstIncreasing numbers of cyclists on the road are making roads more dangerous, for cyclists as well as drivers. I'm a cyclist myself, on and off-road, and believe an active lifestyle should be encouraged. Cycling is a great way to go about it.

I cycle these days circa 8000miles per annum - mainly in Scotland, but in Devon when visiting relatives. The A831 is far from cycle friendly - narrow, twisty, tight, fast, heavy traffic. This cycle route is 30 years overdue and MUST now be implemented. We want a healthy active nation doDec 04, 2014

1,165Neil TullySafe and easy access to the countryside and rural settlements has become increasingly difficult for walkers and cyclists over the last 40 years or so, and most rural distributor routes around Totnes are dominated by vehicles.

Councils should be looking to redress the balance at every opportunity by building cycle friendly routes.

1,066Laurence PettittIt would be brilliant if there were a safe route for walkers and cyclists to Littlehempston because I think it would bring business the the little town (especially the pub). I believe there is now reason why this cycle path shouldn't be built considering how much money has already been spent building the bridge over the river dart that makes this cycle path possible.

People have been killed on this road. A cycle path would give safe access for all, including older citizens and children; something which does not exist at the moment. I therefore urge you to facilitate this path. AmaFeb 04, 2013

794Nigel AshThe current walking route to Littlehempston involves Boughton Lane and an extremely dangerous crossing of the A381 at the Pink Cottage. It is not possible from Boughton Lane to reach the footpath leading down to the Hems above Chateau Bellevue by passing over the fields behind the old council tip. The only access is up the A381 from Totnes, which is dangerous. A path along the river valley is thMay 24, 2012

537Peter StilwellThis route to littlehemston is an ancient road and I would love to see it re-opened as a beautiful cycle path. I would expect that it will bring more custom to the steam railway and the rare breeds farm as they'll be more footfall, and perhaps it will get a few more country walkers in the pig and whistle.

515Angela and Nobby CleggThis proposal would made an enormous difference to walking safely in the area between Bridgetown and the Station/River Dart paths. The speed and volume of traffic on the Newton Abbot road precludes many circular routes or safe direct access into town. Surely we should be encouraging cycling and walking rather than encouraging car use. We would definitely use the proposed route. Mar 29, 2012

I have cycled the main road a couple of times - and felt that I have taken my life in my hands.

However, the concerns of the steam railway and the Rare Breeds Farm do need to be sympathetically addressed. It is not a question Mar 16, 2011
145 Trudy TurrellI look forward to being able to cycle this route traffic free. when you see how many people use the Dartington cycle path and enjoy both a recreational route and a safe route to school, work or shop, it shows how much such local paths are used and appreciated Mar 15, 2011
144 Pia MartinusI cycle both for leisure and work, on my own and with my daughter. I very much look forward to using the route connecting to littlehempston. this will help me also in my work as do most of my home visits by bicycle. Mar 15, 2011
143 Johnny GowdyWell done for keeping up the pressure. It has already been delayed for too long. There must be a solution for the security issues for the railway and rare breeds farm if people are prepared to compromise. I wish that the railway in particular would sem the positive benefits of a rail/cycle link. Other steam railways actively promote cyclists and put on a cycle freight car. Mar 15, 2011
142 The Scott familyWe live in Broadhempston and would definitely cycle more regularly into Totnes if this safer route were created. It can only bring good things, surely; less car use, healthier people, increased green tourism to the area. And probably increased business for the railway and Rare Breeds Centre too I would have thought! Thank you for pushing for this hugely important public resource, I look forward tMar 15, 2011
141 Jon MorrisThe proposed cycle track will finally give the villagers of Littlehempston, Broadhempston and other outlying parishes a real alternative to the frankly suicidal option of cycling on the busy A381. School children, local workers and commuters would finally have a safe and easy cycle route into Totnes taking the strain of the already clogged roads into town. Totnes residents would gain a new recreMar 15, 2011
140 Kate LegumNo one seems to object to the idea of having a path but the route needs to be agreed by as many people as possible. Lets get together and look at any issues raised by those affected by the path and see how they can be addressed. Mar 15, 2011
139 Margot CooperLiving in Littlehempston I am aware how urgently needed this path is. I used to worry about my son cycling on the main road, it's treacherous. I lend my support to everyone fighting this cause. Mar 15, 2011

137 Frances MayI am so excited about this cycle path. I would love to cycle but am really wobbly on a bike. This cycle past would give me a chance to go somewhere to get confidence in cycling before facing roads. Also vital link for getting to Littlehempston. I cannot drive and so it would give great acccess to beautiful parts of South Hams to walk in as well. Mar 15, 2011
136 Caroline DoughtyHaving cycled the Totnes to Dartington path many times with my children I would now dearly love to be able to go a little farther! A cycle path to Littlehempston makes sense on so many levels - not least to allow people to cycle safely to work and reduce the traffic congestion and parking nightmares in Totnes. But it would also allow people in Totnes to cycle out of town safely, just for fun. I wMar 15, 2011
135 Paul AdamsI 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, BerFeb 09, 2011

126 Mr Andrew PetersI've been walking the route for 8 years and my crazy son even took his scooter down it. I agree with Cllr Alan Gorman - it IS an existing route - Two old green lanes to Staverton and Littlehempston. Route One - As James Bellchambers describes above, it goes from North Ford, Totnes.

122 Heather Townsend - KI have many friends in Totnes and this cycle path would make it so easy for me to visit them, or for them to reach me and to use the local facilities- swimming pool, shops, school! etc. Can there really be a good reason not to have this access for so many people? We are the next generation and we want this cyclepath to happen. We are aware of global warming and carbon footprints, what sort of examDec 20, 2010
121 John CrispA fantastic idea. We're not exactly blessed with safe cycling routes in teignbridge and south hams. As a former resident of Broadhempston it would have been a joy to cycle into totnes without resorting to busy and dangerous main roads. The route would be wonderful for tourism. As the first transition town, it seems logical that totnes should have alternative means of transport to its environs. TheDec 20, 2010

117 Annie LeymarieI live in Dartington and it's a joy to see the uptake of cycling there, thanks to the presence of the cycle path. Everyone is gaining from it! We urgently need the proposed new path as the Totnes-Newton Abbot road is so terribly dangerous - for cars, let alone cyclists or walkers! We need it for us, local cyclists and pedestrians, and for our visitors: green tourism has tremendous potential in tDec 14, 2010
116 Keith ClementsThis cycle path ie essential! It will be used by many who are currently using cars to commute to or from Totnes/Newton Abbot and will thus reduce the amount of traffic on the Totnes - Newton Abbot road.

The Rare Breeds Farm is surely missing a huge potential customer base by oppoDec 14, 2010

104 Ian BlackwellThe cycle path would be fantastic, opening up the lanes out towards the neighbouring villages. It would mean Totnes people would be exploring villages, spending money in post offices, shops, cafes and pubs, and the cycle path would encourage a whole lot of people from Broadhempston, Littlehempston, Ipplepen and wider afield would come into Totnes to support our traders... and it would mean fewer cDec 13, 2010

101 Mr PetersOur family has lived next to the proposed route and campaigned on it for 7 years.

100 Neville CreganWe need any cycle routes possible in South Devon where provision for cyclists is largely shocking and embarressing for an area with supposed green credentials.

35 Iso BarndenCompletion of this leg of the cycle path makes so much sense, not only to residents of Littlehempston and environs who deserve joined-up local and environmentally friendly transport routes, but to longer-distance cyclists and economy-boosting holiday visitors to Totnes. I hope that the old logjam of resistance will finally be freed by this positive campaign. Nov 01, 2010
34 Mrs Alix RileyI do hope this cycle path can be built soon. Living in Totnes, it is really important to us to be able to cycle out to nearby villages. We can cycle to Ashprington and to Dartington, but this path would open up cycling on the other bank of the river. The main roads are much too busy to cycle on now.Nov 01, 2010
33 Dr. Elaine SeymourI visit my family in Little Hempston several times a year and always blanche when I encounter a cyclist on the highly dangerous A381 to Totnes. I enjoy visiting the South Devon Railway and Rare Beeds Farm with my grand daughters. They are very nice people, and I imagine they would find it hard to forgive themselves if a cyclist were injured or killed on that road. Come on fellers; win the thanksOct 31, 2010
32 Neil MayaIn my opinion cycling along main roads in Devon is an extremely dangerous activity and the Totnes to Newton Abbot Road is a really good example of this. I love cycling and so do my children and there are still so few safe routes around Totnes. I really hope a way through this can be found to avoid future cycling casualties. Neil Maya Oct 30, 2010

28 Cllr Dennis SmithThe completion of the cycle network is something that can only be of benefit to the local community and has my complete support. For those who leisure ride and those who commute cycling along the A381 is no longer an option given the speed of traffic flow. Along with others I fail to see why this cannot go ahead, the perceived vandalism is surely just a lame excuse. If vandals were going to crossOct 29, 2010

23 Adam DadebyI look forward to this cycle route. Littlehempston is such a short distance from Totnes (nice and level too); it is a no-brainer for an official cycle route. It will benefit Littlehempston, as cycling to town should be easier and quicker than driving for many people. That should mean fewer car journeys and less noise. Oct 28, 2010
22 Peter SmithThis cycle link is "a no brainer" to anyone who knows the area. So many excellent reasons for it so I can't think why it isn't happening. The infrastructure is all there bar a very short strip along the South Devon Railway Station and Rare Breeds Farm. Please get this done - it will have benefits for everyone!Oct 28, 2010
21 Chris BirdGreat site and worthy cause. Let's have a cycle-path before we have a tragedy! Oct 28, 2010

19 James RiseberoI'm a frequent user of the bike path between Totnes and Dartington and take my son on a tag-along to school. The path is so well used for the school run. It's such a pleasure to see so many kids and parents riding. I have no doubt that the Littlehempston extension would be equally as popular. Please, let's make this happen soon.

18 Gary Streeter MPI support this project and look forward to the cycle path coming our way anytime soon Let me know if I can help. Oct 25, 2010
17 SandraGreat to see such an appealing, easy to use website supporting the cycle path! It makes such sense to open up this path and gain safe access to Totnes - surely there's no real risk of vandalism if the bridge were only open for the same number of hours as it is now? A cycle route for daytime use would be a start. Oct 22, 2010
16 Ben Bradshaw MPA fully inter-connected cyclepath network in Devon is important for all of us, and I fully support your efforts to make this happen in your own corner of our fantastic county. We've made massive strides in Exeter as one of the Cycling Demonstration towns, with a proper cycle network leading to a massive increase in cycling, despite the hills! I look forward to the day I can cycle from Exeter to ToOct 22, 2010
15 Gordon HookThis cycleway is not simply an optional add on, it's a vital alternative transport link between Totnes and ultimately Newton Abbot and onwards to Teignmouth. It is an economic and environmental necessity and has my 100% unequivical support as has your excellent campaign. Gordon Hook Devon County Cllr. Newton Abbot South and Chair DCC Environment, Economy and Culture Committee. Oct 21, 2010
14 Steve CasemoreWhy are we not getting this cycle-way faster. Why oh why won't South Devon Railway just allow the cyclists along the bridge, and why oh why are they acting in such a selfish manner. Come on Guys share it out for the health and social wealth of our community. Oct 21, 2010
