Swaledale Cycle route work starts

Work has started on a family friendly cycle route along the valley bottom of Swaledale – a total length of about 12 miles of which about 75% will be traffic free.

Whilst this is an easier project than the Derwent Valley Cycleway (all the route already existed as bridleway or road so there are no land access or other legal issues) it is great to see a project with similar goals coming to fruition.
