Should cyclists be allowed to use dedicated routes on Tennyson Down to resolve a conflict with other users?
That is the question being posed in a public consultation, as the National Trust tries to find a way of keeping cyclists away from delicate areas of the Down.
There are currently no bridal ways on the Down, and Tony Tutton from the Trust told IW Radio that they could be one of the answers: "We have had problems with cycling on Tennyson Down and the routes that they can use, how it conflicts with other visitors. So we've looked into the options of making it permissable for cyclists to go on certain bits and getting them off the rather difficult road that goes between Freshwater Bay and the Needles."
And Tony said that the consultation is about achieving the right balance: "The National Trust is all about access, it's about making balances but it's enabling people to enjoy the countryside and to enable us to do that, we've got to weigh up the pros and cons and the risks involved in that."
The public consultation closes on 31 October.
