This is a classic:
Mr Smith, who is also a cycling campaigner, said: "The problem is that people can't tell where the cycle paths are.
"Many times the county council has just put some white lines down and designated it a cycle path.
"We don't support people cycling illegally on footpaths but we do need to see better infrastructure for cyclists to stop them doing it."
The News reported in January that borough councillor Ken Trussell had requested £25,000 from the borough council's budget to fund some improvements.
However, the money will not pay for the upkeep of cycle paths but is geared towards encouraging more people to cycle.
