99712Photo #99712We’ve made this narrow country lane walking & cycling friendly!

Great! How?

We’ve put up signs explaining that it’s friendly.

OK but … it’s still shared with cars and trucks. Why no footway or cycle path?

LOL. We’ve made signs.

But 40mph though…?

What’s wrong with 40mph? t.co/uPmZ7ngpUK

28679Photo #28679Start of the cyclepath section of the NCN7 running alongside the A9 al the way to Dalwhinnie.
The warning about severe weather and snow seemed rather drastic on the mild day in March when this photo was taken. However the parallel section of the A9 has show gates at the point on the route so maybe the intended message here is that there is no snow clearing of the cyclepath and no snow gates.
