Cyclists clear up dog mess

Dog-owners got a pat on the back from cyclists who pick up ‘dog-fouls’ on the cycle track between Redcar and Saltburn. “Our efforts in picking up the

mess each Saturday is paying off and we thank dog-owners for their co- operation,” said Philip Chisholm, of the national cycle network charity Sustrans. “We spotted only 12 ‘dog-fouls’

on Saturday, 12th November on the five- mile stretch compared with an average of 182 a week when we started the scheme nearly two years ago. This is a massive improvement. I put it down to good community fellowship by example.” Mr Chishom, of Redcar is regional co-ordinator of

the stretch from Staithes to the Tees Barrage, Stockton, and he leads 15 volunteer rangers, whose task is to plan and organise more cycleways to add to the national network.

With him on that Saturday was

80-year-old Richard Mann, of Marske, who rides an electrically- driven bike. “I’m pleased to be able to help to clear up mess on my stretch near Marske. The whole track locally is looking beautiful,” he said. Mr Chisholm, a ret ired

commercial photographer, said Sustrans has received planning permission to open an eight-mile long new t rack f rom Ki ldale to Kiltonthorpe, near Brotton, and it would be officially opened next April.

“This will help to attract some of the 71,000 cyclists

a year who use the track between Scarborough and Whitby to visit Redcar and Cleveland. Currently the bridlepaths they use bypass this borough including Guisborough, Redcar and Saltburn.”
