Peter heading along the Turbary Road.

It been over two years seen the South Lakes Group as had a ride along Turbary Road, its disappointing to here in e-mail from Jane Gill the Secretary of the Yorkshire Dales Group of the RSF that there as been quite a bit of damage by  off road motor vehicles in the past few years on this lovely public byway which runs from Yordas Cave in Kingsdale up to Bullpot Bank, then makes its away through the moorland above Kingsdale up to North End Scar before dropping down to Masongill Fell Lane.

Steps are being taken to prevent future damage, by down grading this track to bridleway or a footpath, so your help is needed with regards to evidence of mountain bike or cycle use over past 20 years, so that the track can be down grade to a bridleway.

The South Lakes Group as had rides along the Turbary Road on 10th July 2011, 27th March 2010, 25th April 2009, and 16th March 2008.

If you know of any other evidence on line of mountain bike use or cycle use or horse riding use  on line, please add a link in the comment box below.

It does highlight how important that mountain biking clubs, off-road cycle touring clubs and RSF local groups to have good websites that show use by cyclists and mountain bikers of off-road cycle routes and I hope that other RSF Groups follow the example of South Lakes Group which as had its own website seen March 2001.
