RANGERS to help maintain and promote the National Cycle Network are needed.
Sustrans, the sustainable transport charity, says there is a growing need for people to take on their own section of the network.
It covers more than 8,000 miles with local sections including the Calder Valley Greenway, between Huddersfield and Dewsbury, the Spen Valley Greenway in Ravensthorpe and the Trans-Pennine Trail through Dunford Bridge, south of Holmfirth.
Around 1,500 volunteers spend one or two hours a week checking their route, dealing with minor signing and maintenance problems and reporting larger problems to keep routes safe and accessible.
Tony Ambrose, volunteer programme manager, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity to become a part of the biggest cycling and walking project in the country and to help people in your community to discover the benefits of cycling and walking.
