Bid to find out who’s us­ing the tow­path – and how

Canal Boat - - News -

AS THE LAT­EST step in its ‘Share the Space’ cam­paign to en­cour­age more con­sid­er­ate tow­path shar­ing by dif­fer­ent groups of users such as cy­clists, walk­ers, boaters and anglers, the Canal & River Trust has launched an on­line ten-minute tow­path shar­ing sur­vey.

The sur­vey is aimed at all tow­path users, but refers par­tic­u­larly to run­ning and cy­cling, with ev­ery­one com­plet­ing it get­ting the chance to win £ 50 of Wig­gle (on­line cy­cle / run­ning shop) vouch­ers. Ques­tions in­clude: Whether those tak­ing part re­alise that tow­paths are a “shared space with pedes­trian pri­or­ity”. Whether they have been in­volved in any col­li­sions / near misses / been shouted at. Whether they use Strava or any other run­ning / cy­cling app or sim­i­lar. What they think of the speed of other tow­path users. At­ti­tudes to chi­canes, bar­ri­ers and speed bumps. The sur­vey closes on 20 Jan­uary. To take part, go to canal­ and fol­low the links to ‘about us’, ‘our cam­paigns’ and ‘share the space’.
