Your Cycling and Waking Paths Need You!

Mountain BikingVolunteers are needed to help keep a growing network of walking and cycling paths in Cornwall looking beautiful.

Sustainable transport charity Sustrans will organise a ride along the Pentewan Trail on August 19 to form a new active local ranger group, which will put up signs along the six-mile circular route.

The attractive traffic-free route is one of several Clay Trails in Cornwall and part of Sustrans’ National Cycle Network, created to encourage people of all ages to travel in healthier and more environmentally friendly ways.
Each ranger looks after a section of the Network near their home and can also promote Sustrans and its wider work to increase use of the routes.

Jane Chapman, Sustrans Volunteer Programme Assistant, said: “This is a great opportunity for people to make a positive difference in their community. Volunteer rangers act as the eyes and ears for Sustrans and local authorities, making sure that routes are kept as safe and attractive as possible for cyclists, walkers and wheelchair users.

“The Pentewan Trail is one of the many beautiful Clay Trails in Cornwall, which are helping thousands of people to lead more active lifestyles. We really hope we can welcome more people into the fold to maintain these routes.”

The ride, which sets out from St Austell station at 1pm, will be followed by a local Sustrans meeting at the White Hart Hotel, Church Street, St Austell, at 6pm. To register interest call 0117 9150238 or email volunteers-south@sustrans.org.uk
