50,000 pains in the neck

THE reopening of the tunnels on the Monsal Trail in the Peak District is being hailed as a major success after the 50,000th cyclist was counted on New Year’s Eve.

The 8.5-mile route is popular with walkers, horse riders, families with pushchairs and people on mobility scooters, but cycling has seen a dramatic increase since four former railway tunnels were opened by the Peak District National Park Authority last May.

And by and large the cyclists are a pain in the backside for walkers. Inconsiderate, ignorant and illiterate to the code of the trail.
