And yet round here the canal towpath is a National Cycle Route.

A short section of route 6 is on the Trent and Mersey canal south of Derby.

Just looked back a page. Why is there a problem asking cyclists to dismount in certain places? I suggest it is not about width but speed and control plus a walking cyclist is less different to the pedestrian. A few seconds/minutes longer is irrelevant. After all we use this when wanting cars to slow down.
