Share the Path
Cornwall offers over 40 km of recreation trails that are shared by people walking, jogging and cycling. All pathway users should be considerate of others and follow these simple rules:
– Don’t block the path.
– Be alert to your surroundings and keep control of small children and dogs at all times.
– Keep to the right. Faster users should pass on the left.
– Cyclists, in-line skaters and skateboarders must yield to pedestrians.
– Pedestrians must walk no more than two abreast, and cyclists must ride in single file.
– When someone lets you know that they are passing from behind, acknowledge that you heard them, and be sure to keep right.
– Always ride at safe speeds.
