We're reclaiming the path

POLICE have stepped up patrols on the Bristol to Bath Railway Path between Fishponds and Bristol following a spate of attacks on cyclists.

One teenager has been arrested and police have urged anyone with information about incidents on the popular route to get in touch.

 Meanwhile, moves are afoot to ensure that cyclists and walkers all feel safe to use the track. Councils have linked with cycling and community activists to launch an initiative entitled One Path, encouraging all users to behave respectfully to one another.

Separately, dozens of path users staged a 'Reclaim the Path' demo and have launched a petition.
