Serious side to our canal plunge splash

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

 

Following last week’s splash on the local cyclist that went head first into the canal while overtaking his wife, British Waterways has issued a timely reminder to locals.Welshpool Canal
We reported how Marshall Bayliss took the plunge after deciding to try and beat his wife home in the final stretch of a leisurely bike ride. However it resulted in the 68 year-old going head first into the canal!
Unbeknown to Marshall, and a majority of cyclists who use the canal paths regularly, permits should be obtained before using the pathways.
A spokeswoman told us: “For most places on our network, we ask that cyclists obtain a permit - it's also free to download or available from the Tourist Information Centre in Welshpool.
“Cyclists are not breaking the law should they fail to obtain one, but given the multi-use nature of the towpaths, it is useful for all users to be aware of the Waterways Code (pedestrians have priority, dismount under low bridges etc).”
