Here lies a new shared path off-limits to disabled cyclists
Last year a new path was built by Sustrans linking an existing bridleway to Rufforth. Great, right? Sure, *unless you dare to cycle on a non-conventional bike and/or have a physical disability*! Because what's this we have here? It's a barrier that makes it impossible for people with a physical disability and/or on a non-conventional bike to get past! Sustrans claim that the Council is responsible for this barrier, and the Council have said that those responsible "have been informed". Will action be taken? Will the 15-20% of York residents who have a physical disability be able to use this new path funded with their taxpayers' money? We shall see.
