New £670,000 city bike plan
An urban waterfront area is to get a £670,000 boost to turn it into a bike-friendly attraction to bring in visitors from across the Westcountry and further afield.
The aim of the project in Plymouth is to breathe new life into key locations along the shore including Commercial Wharf on the historic Barbican.
There are also plans to build on Plymouth's reputation as a bike-friendly city, including bike hire cycle hubs.
The £670,400 funding boost follows a bid by Plymouth City Council to the Coastal Communities Fund.

Council leader Tudor Evans said: "Plymouth has natural assets that most cities would kill to have. This bid plans to bring to life areas on the waterfront that have been too quiet for too long.
"I'm also really excited about the opportunities for cycling tourists. Knowing how popular cycling trails such as the Tarka are, this is a great chance for us to attract families as well as couples and individuals to get on their bikes."
