“Get back in the saddle and explore” – South Holderness Cycle Map!
|March 5, 2013||Filled under East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Holderness, Spurn|
A NEW LEISURE CYCLE MAP prepared by the East Riding Council’s transport policy team is encouraging South Holderness residents to take to their bikes and explore the local area.
The map was developed in partnership with local Ward councillors and town and parish councils and has been funded through the council’s third Local Transport Plan.
The map aims to encourage local residents and visitors to the area to get back in the saddle and explore their local countryside by bike. Cycling is a cheap, healthy and environmentally friendly mode of travel and is the perfect way to see some of the local sites, particularly as the weather improves.
Councillor Chris Matthews, cabinet portfolio holder for infrastructure, highways and emergency planning at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The council is making every effort to encourage more people to get active and to get out and about using their bikes. We hope that the map will be well used by local people and visitors to the area and that people enjoy the rides.”
The free map contains six circular cycle routes of varying length and difficulty which cater for all ages and abilities. Most of the routes use quiet roads or off-road tracks and take in the scenic countryside of the South Holderness area, as well as passing via local attractions such as Fort Paull museum and Burton Constable House – perfect for stopping for a rest and a well-earned cuppa!
The map was developed following the success of the Pocklington and Driffield cycling maps which were published in 2012. Over 3,000 copies of these maps have now been distributed and the council is hoping that the South Holderness map will be equally well received.
