Wanstead has some very happy cyclists about. The authorities of Wanstead Park, the City of London – known as @CoLEppingForest on Twitter – has installed signs indicating that an extra path has been opened up to genteel cyclists, but with pedestrian priority. The new shared section runs from the Wanstead Park Avenue entrance, skirting Heronry Pond round to the existing shared use path which runs down from Warren Road.
Particularly welcome news for Wanstead residents wanting to explore the park, and also for Aldersbrook kids wanting to cycle up towards Wanstead schools.
PS. One thing though – “permissive” used to be a dirty word didn’t it?
