Sir: National Byway's plans for a 3,000-mile network of cycle trails will be welcomed by pedestrians everywhere, as they keep bicycles where they belong - on the roads. Sustrans, by contrast, has no qualms about seeking to take over footpaths for dual use by cyclists and walkers. Walkers lose the peace of mind and freedom of movement they enjoy on footpaths if they have to be ever alert for cyclists.
