Thanks for that Zulu-Eleven, appreciated
Crash on bridleway.. sue the council .. any one here likely to do that
I very much doubt the scottish guy will win his case - seems without merit to me.
nbt and Zulu Eleven...It is the Countryside Act 1968 which removed the exclusion of cycles from bridleways thereby removing the offence., the kick backs given to horse riders were no racing and the requirement for cyclists to give way and for council and landowners no responsibility for making the ways suitable for cycles ( in 1968 it was more or less the rough stuff fellowship and elements or ctc on drop handled touring bikes that were going to be the users)
I have much respect for nbt but am surprised he was unaware of this reference .. do you not have a copy of the blue book ??
No offence to the lad but if your riding a new trail with jumps for the first time arent you supposed to take it easy? Check it our first?
Gotta be shite for him, for sure, but he has to accept responsibility for his actions. If I was the FC I'd sue him for Â£3m for lack of common sense if he wins.
I'm aware in terms of the legality, but no I don't have any books of law andf whatnot - this is only a hobby for me remember, not my job
