1) Did you take part in Ceredigion's on-line active travel engagement in 2020/2021?
2) Please select the settlement you are commenting on.
2a) If commenting about a route outside one of the defined active travel settlement areas, please give a description so we know where you are referring to.
I think it would be a great help to both cyclists and pedestrians if the Bow Street path could be linked to the one that goes towards Talybont from a short distance beyond Dolgau and a path all the way to Machynlleth would be good for both locals and tourists.s
4) Do you think the network of proposed (future) routes shown on this map will encourage you to walk/cycle more for everyday journeys?
6) Do you have any additional comments regarding walking and cycling facilities or active travel policy that you would like us to consider?
Most paths close to built-up areas would benefit if they had more rubbish and dog-poo bins.
Aberystwyth to Machynlleth
3) Are we correct in our assessment of routes that already meet the agreed standards (existing routes)?
5) Are there routes missing from the proposed network that would help you make every-day active travel journeys?
5a) If you answered yes to question 5, please provide details
Comins Coch to lluest end of Waunfawr and on to llanbadarn
Consider the maintenance and useability of the network. Cycle paths which are covered in leaves or zig zag crossing the roads too often are less useful than ones which are clear and maintained
4a) If you answered no or maybe to question 4, what else would help you change your current short car journeys to walking and cycling?
More routes and upgrades of routes around Waunfawr into Aberystwyth and connecting to comins coch for primary school catchment are needed.
There is a public right of way that connects the main Waunfawr road with the cycle path to comins coch - this could be improved (and I commented on previous consultation but it hasn't been picked up). I cycle my child to comins school - incorporating a traffic barrier where the cycle path/pavement runs alongside the A487 would make this journey feel much safer. Another improvement would be to put two drop curbs on coming up the hill after the steps on Maeshendre to avoid having to get off an on bikes.
The Waunfawr bike trail is an excellent asset that the council should retain and sponsor and support the local community to have active and healthy children. It is a real shame that this was padlocked this facility during the summer holidays.
Safe route away from traffic for bikes so I can get from my village in furnace to the local shop in treddol and to my children's school in Talybont and around the village on foot on a safe path without getting killed by lorries.
Allow bikes on buses
Acycle path along the A487 that links Machynlleth to Aberystwyth that is separated from traffic. A safe path through my village of furnace so my children can visit their friends in the village without getting killed. A safe cycling path between furnace and treddol so we can cycle to our local shop without fear of being killed by a lorry. A safe cycling route to get from Furnace to the nearest school in Talybont so my children can ride their bikes to school without being killed.
