CYCLISTS and walkers are being encouraged to work in tandem at beauty spots this summer – to help make sure that all visitors can enjoy them safely.
Severn Trent Water's visitor centre manager, Dan Taberner, is asking cyclists and walkers to care about each other's needs and show respect in order to keep everyone safe.
He said: "Although it's a busy time of year, there is space for everyone, as long as all our visitors are considerate of each other's needs.
"If you're a cyclist approaching a walker, make sure they know that you're there – slow down, and if you have a bell sound it, that way people aren't surprised.
"It's the same if you're on foot, if you see a cyclist, let them know you're aware and give them room to pass you.
"We're all there to enjoy the countryside – we just need to show respect and keep each other safe."
