With cycling becoming an increasingly popular hobby and mode of transport, demand for cycle path surfacing in Yorkshire is also on the rise. As with any project of this nature, it’s essential to choose a company that delivers a quality job every time – and that uses all the right surface dressing materials to ensure the longevity of the surface.

Choosing the right type of cycle path surfacing

There are all sorts of practicalities to think about when starting your cycle path surfacing project:

  • Will your cycle lane be on-road and form part of a larger-scale road development?
  • Do you need a bicycle-only lane?
  • Is a footpath with a designated cycle area more appropriate to your requirements?

Knowing the scale and scope of your project from the outset is critical. This will help any contractor know exactly what you are hoping to achieve, meaning they can provide you with a much more detailed quote and plans.

Key considerations

Safety and longevity should be at the core of any cycle path surface. Resin-based materials are a popular option, as they provide high levels of friction and are proven to stand the test of time.

There’s also weather conditions to think about. A surface that becomes slippery when wet is not going to be practical – a good contractor will be able to advise you on the best options available.

Colour is well worth thinking about. Cycle lanes need to easily be separated from a footpath or road, which is why visibility is critical. Think about the different colour options available and whether they will fit in with your plans.

What to look for in a tarmacing contractor

Before you choose a company to take charge of your cycle track surfacing in Yorkshire, there’s several criteria you will need to look out for.

Experience is one of the main considerations. If the business has plenty of examples of past cycle track surfacing they have carried out, then the chances are they are experienced enough to do a good job. Testimonials from previous customers are also worth a look.

The standard of the finish on your cycle track will largely depend on the type of equipment that has been used. Top quality machinery – handled by experienced staff – will usually lead to a top quality finish.

Encouraging two-wheeled travel is just one of the ways in which businesses are looking to reduce their carbon footprint. Why not make your cycle track surfacing project eco-friendly by choosing a company that bears the environment in mind? Whether it’s through using recycled materials or taking steps to reduce the impact on the surrounding area, there are positive steps that contractors can make towards a greener future.
