Re: London - on the spot fine

Thanks for all the replies - I have just seen another thread about cyclists walking through red lights. Apologies if I have duplicated the subject. On balance I think I will just pay the fine. It sounds like the law is open to interpretation and a judge could have a simple view that "a red ligh...

London - on the spot fine

Arrgh. The pain and the shame. Cycling from the City to Paddington on the Embankment Cycling highway, many cyclists are perhaps familiar with the right turn into Nortumberland Ave. See my picture. I saw the Police officer monitoring the junction so was particularly careful. I dismounted by the circl...

Re: Countryside opening hours

The sign is on a normal public access bridleway. Once in the woods there are informal tracks all over the place - I can imagine that these are permissive.

I see your point. If the land owner and the PROW officer agree that the sign is wrong, why are they still there?

Re: Countryside opening hours

Thanks for the replies. I reckon as one person said: "don't make a nuisance and just get on and use it".

This map is from the Glos. definitive rights of way map. Lots of blue bridle paths and that is good enough for me.
Restrictive signs are on (some) entrances to the woods

Countryside opening hours

See this sign - who would have thought it?
Fair enough that Lord Bathurst opens up his private lands and chooses his own terms.
But the sign is by a marked (and legally confirmed) bridleway.
Surely he can’t overlay his own rules (opening hours, no cycles) on to public rights of way?
