“What is striking about biking is not that it solves any particular problem but, instead, that it is part of the solution to several.” —

Five Arches Greenway Opening Day - The video

Just came across this video, from the Sustrans Youtube Library, covering the opening event of the Five Arches Greenway between Radstock and Midsomer Norton, Somerset.

To the apparent disappointment of a few people, this new route, built upon the formation of the late lamented Somerset & Dorset Railway, was constructed with a smooth sealed surface suitable for all users in all weathers. In accordance with current standards a softer equestrian surface was also constructed to one side.

The Five Arches Greenway project grew from a community initiative supporting the Sustrans Connect2 project.
