Cyclists in Marlow have been reminded to use the designated cycle paths after several riders were seen cycling on footpaths in the town. 

This comes after police officers from Thames Valley Police saw the cyclists not use the cycle tracks over the weekend (April 18 and 19).

In a brief statement on Facebook, Thames Valley Wycombe said: “Whilst being out on patrol #MarlowNHPT has noticed the increased number of cyclists on the road.

“We would like to remind cyclists to be vigilant of pedestrians and not to cycle down footpaths - these are for pedestrians only.

Marlow Town Council then added: “We are receiving numerous complaints about cyclists using public footpaths, particularly in the Happy Valley area.

“If you are going outside to exercise please follow the rules to keep everyone safe and able to enjoy the outdoors.”
