Cyclists urged to keep off reservoir’s Millennium Walk

CYCLISTS need to find somewhere else to practise their sport, according to Guernsey Water’s Andrew Redhead.
The 3km-long Millennium Walk nature trail opened in 2001 and, for the first time, allowed people to walk around the reservoir.
Recently, however, cyclists have taken to using the path, potentially putting walkers at risk, said Mr Redhead, the director of water services.
‘People are taking mountain bikes around the trail and my concern is the pedestrians. It is a windy, narrow track – which they often do at speed – and there have been a few near misses.’
While there is no law against cycling on the track, there is a sign asking people not to do so.
