Calls to improve cycling in North Devon

Campaign launched on Tarka Trail

A cycling manifesto has been launched in North Devon, calling for better infrastructure so that the county is a safe place to get on your bike.

A group called the Northern Devon cycling campaign held an even on the Tarka Trail to kick off the initiative. The area's Conservative MP Selaine Saxby joined them. She sits on the all party parliamentary group for walking and cycling. She claims there's a lot of money on the way to help.

Tom Wiersma from the group says they want people to feel able "to leave their cars at home and to start using a bicycle."
