Fylde Council is responsible for a number of parks and open spaces which have paths/promenades which are ‘shared spaces’. These will be signposted and they allow both cyclists and walkers to use the space with consideration for each other.

Advice for cyclists

  • Please keep to the left where possible
  • Give way to pedestrians and wheelchair users and acknowledge those that give way to you
  • Don’t expect to cycle at high speeds and be prepared to slow down or stop if necessary
  • Take special care at junctions, bends and entrances, especially in the wet
  • Do not wear headphones which could affect your hearing of people and the environment around you.
  • Fix a bell to your bike and use it to warn others of your approach. However, remember that some people are hard of hearing or visually impaired and so don’t assume they can hear or see you

Advice for walkers and others

  • Please keep to the left where possible
  • Be aware of children learning to cycle, who may swerve unexpectedly
  • Take care at junctions, bends and entrances, or where visibility is limited
  • Keep dogs on a lead – dog waste can be put in bags in the litter bins
  • Let cyclists pass you
