Dartmoor National Park Authority is seeking views on a new code of conduct for cycling within the National Park. The new code provides a simple set of guidelines aimed at encouraging responsible cycling for both on and off road cyclists.
The National Park produces codes for all the most popular activities on Dartmoor and with a huge increase in the use of the moor and its road network for cycling there is a need for guidance and information on awareness.
Dartmoor provides many opportunities to enjoy both on road and off road cycling, from quiet lanes, designated cycle routes (including the Granite Way, Princetown Railway and the Wray Valley Trail) and an extensive network of bridleways for off road cycling.
