Ogwell Cycling Forum

Information about cycling in our area, ideas on routes to cycle, cafe stops and possible village based activity such as Bike Maintenance and Route Planning using bike computers and associated software. All ideas welcome to Paul at ogwild4@gmail.com

Teignbridge Cycle Forum – 12th November 2020

A: Ogwell to Newton Abbot through Baker’s Park update

There is 1 small route problem to be resolved that they hope will happen in early 2021. Planning permission and funding are already in place to give us a route from the River Lemon/ASDA to Ogwell without using the A381 and town roads.

B: A ‘Newton Abbot Cycling Hub’

There have been calls for this to be established. TDC is keen to support as are the local Mid Devon Cycling Club which has 500+ members. An early options review is being undertaken and the welcome inputs. If you forward any ideas to ogwild4@gmail.com I can then forward them to the lead person.

C: Teign Estuary Trail update

This is a very complex project but progress is being made and if achieved would enable a cycle route from Exeter to Moretonhampstead via Dawlish & Teignmouth and Chagford are pushing for an extension to their village. Latest route info below.

A very important consultation started on 17th November 2020 and closes on 18th December, you can reposed through this link: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=gzehjWjLP0S7S5l_d_1b-3rs0iCm3ClGgjRa2TJw2mJUMEo0NEZFR1M1NUo5M1BSRVk0S1laUjM2Uy4u&fbclid=IwAR3qW97_iGBbupCI99eV9n7cAZVpYClrOEwhoOx_g4391tBlzb9mKZYPu64

D: Kingsteignton to the Stover Trail

The plans are for the path to use the almost complete dual purpose path on the east side of the road next to the new housing area as far as Broadway Road. A crossing will then take you into and to the west of Exeter Road where a new path, a new bridge across the Teign will take you to join the existing entrance to the Stover Trail complex, all very exciting as there are no land ownership issue as Sibelco are granting use of their land for the new section.
