Cyclists speeding on canal path

Dog walkers are calling for action to stop cyclists speeding on a popular canal pathway.

Pet owners say riders can hit speeds of 15-20mph on the path along the Forth and Clyde Canal between Townhead and the Stables.

Walkers say the problem means it is not safe for them to use the path in the evenings.

They are now asking British Waterways to erect signs warning cyclists to slow down on the route.

One concerned dog walker said: “It’s a nightmare, they are coming along the stretch at full pelt and if you ask them to slow down they just look at you.”
