The Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs' consultation on the processes for recording, diverting and extinguishing public rights of way (England) is a chance to suggest ways to make it easier for cyclists to engage with the system and help open more of the countryside for cycling.

At the moment, the system is extremely bureaucratic, but the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs' (Defra) consultation on the processes involved is a good opportunity to press for the changes that will help enhance the experience of cycling in the countryside.

This is a public consultation, so if you would like to add your support to CTC's recommendations for improving the system in the interests of cycling, please send Defra your own response. See our guide on what to do and what to say.

The deadline for responding to the consultation is 6/08/2012.
