- Chapel Gate, Roych Vehicle Ban – Is it to be enforced?
One question, though – I have come across various groups who are trying to represent MTB in the Peaks and wondered where they all fit together. For example – you lot, Ride Sheffield, Ride the Peaks (I think that was their name – I filled in one of their surveys once).
Ride the Peak is no more, as far as I am aware it morphed into Ride Sheffield.Posted 4 years ago
We set up because we were asked to do so by a PDNPA Councillor as there was no voice for resident MTB riders, we discussed this with RS as we wanted to look further into the Peak (south and west) as there is a lot of riding to be had in that direction. RS are heavily involved with the Eastern Moors etc.
Also, as residents we elect the councillors at DCC so, in theory, they should at the very least listen.
There is another group called the Hope Valley Cyclists who are keen to link up villages within the valley.
There will, inevitable be some crossover but we are trying to keep it to a minimum.Posted 4 years ago
Staying on the Right Track Recreational Motor Vehicles in the Peak District National Park
Update – February 2014
The National Park Authority has made an order to prohibit motorised vehicles from the Roych. It comes into effect on 20 February 2014. Details of the order and the reasons for it can be found at http://www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/tros. It is now an offence for motorised vehicles to use the Roych unless specifically exempted.richpipsMember
Been wondering too, I swear all traffic was banned yet I still bikes & 4x4s using it.
At present all they need to do is open a gate and access is theirs. Elsewhere in the country they fortify access when there has been a change of use. Hence my original question.
I’ve just sent an email to the PDNP rights of way folk, to see what they have to say.Posted 4 years ago
