Warning signs


There are a number of well marked cycle tracks at Carsington Water, and a good route is to go right around the reservoir.  Cycles can be hired from the visitors centre, where car parking is £2.50 for the full day, or £1.00 for an hour.  If you forget to pay you will be reminded by an orange leaflet on your windscreen when you return to your car. By taking the leaflet to reception and paying the standard parking fee you will avoid any fine.

Some of the cycle route around the reservoir passes through farmland, but it is all well laid out and very safe. On Friday I saw many young children and families cycling on the paths. In places where an insecure cyclist may need to dismount there are clear warning signs.  Sometimes you will notice the sign that advises:

! Warning
Steep hill
Sharp bend.
advised to

Or you may even notice that there is a closed gate across the road.
