Not obviously designed for any cycle access at all. What is the status of that path/strack?
A separate access for horses and (with faff) bicycles.https://email@example.com, ... 6?hl=en-GB
Without being obvious, i would just lift my bicycle over the fence, enter through the kissing gate and ride off on my bike .... are we over thinking this ... i don't see how it is a problem. We have a number of kissing gates near me .. i usually rotate my bicycle onto its rear wheel and wheel it .. and myself , through ... So i have to get off my bike, i am slowed down, ... so what !
If you look at the google images you will see alternative access for horses which you could get a bike over. I guess that is the cycle access, not the kissing gates.
I've used that path several times, always with a heavily laden tourer (at least two panniers, sometimes four, plus tent on top of rack, and usually handlebar bag too). I'm not sure which is the official cycle gate, I think it's the kissing gate with the other being for horses, but I seem to remember that in fact the "easiest" thing was to remove the panniers and it then didn't make much difference between gate or hurdles. With panniers on, it was possible but an effort for me to lift bike over hurdles, even though they're low, but impossible to get through the kissing gate.
