Our community project - to build a shared use path along the B4044 for safe walking and cycling
Bike Safe was set up to build an off road multipurpose path, for cyclists and pedestrians, between Eynsham and Dean Court, Botley. A path linking us with the wider community would reduce the dangers associated with travel, reduce carbon emissions, promote cycling and walking as a form of clean transport and improve health.Why the community needs us
There is currently no provision for cyclists and pedestrians on this route. The road is narrow and cyclists do not feel safe. Residents of all ages will benefit from this project. As well as promotion of exercise for health, CO2 emissions should be lowered through a reduction in short local journeys. This path should increase access to visitors to the area boosting the local economy.Our impact on the community
A multipurpose path will do wonders for improving access by bike and on foot to local schools and local shops. Young people will benefit; an old people's home which lies on the route will benefit as the path would be suitable for mobility scooters. Those who work in Oxford but are currently too frightened to cycle, will be able to. It will also increase access to fantastic recreational facilities in the area - Hill End Environmental Centre and Farmoor reservoir.
