    A 14 year old girl in some walking boots is more damaging to the trails than a fat bloke on orange patriot ?

    Downhill maybe. Uphill no, he’ll be walking too.

    There’s video evidence… noisier than trail bikes as well…

    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.
    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.

    So bitching and sniping aside does anyone know the answer? What is the current status of the Roych?

    Update – February 2014
    Roych Order
    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.

    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.

    What’s the penalty for breaching a TRO – I’ve been on an extended google fest, but not found anything.

    If you see what happened to the barriers placed at the bottom of the Long Causeway then even barriers may not provide an effective deterrent.

    I think it’s an endorsable offence. Just relies on the BiB being around…

    Edit..
    Some info here..
