Received from Ian Hanstead,  Clerk to Vale of Allen Parish Council


I’m asked to raise with cycling clubs the need to advise cyclists the dangers in riding around rural and village roads on events.

At a recent cycle event, a cyclist came off their bike and suffered broken bones from going too fast at the bottom of the hill in Dark Lane, Witchampton.  

I’m sure you undertake risk assessments of routes or raise with riders the dangers that exist on some rural road.  But not sure if gravel, stones and/or mud run off onto roads from fields and road embankments features – which was the cause of the accident detailed above – loose gravel at the bottom of the hill on a bend.

Further, the road maintenance by Dorset Council for rural roads (C and D class) are not a priority, so there are lots of potholes and ruts which would cause cyclists problems if not 100% focused on the road in front of them.



Bournemouth, Weymouth,

Shaftesbury and Gillingham have

no Coordinators at present.

Please contact any DCN committee member without obligation if you might be able to help.
