With the "stay at home" restriction now lifted I thought I'd do some local lanes after tea and came across this at the top of Pindale and also on Dirtlow Rake. No other signs regarding Byway status so I think this is just to put the frighteners on.
That's a good point. There was a 4x4 pickup parked halfway down with some lads riding an unplated bike in the adjacent quarry. 30yds past the pickup was a burnt out car. No sign at the bottom of the track though.I think the supposed lock down itself has caused this issue. Certainly seems to be the case around here. Basically the pay and plays have been shut. The dirt monkeys who enjoy thrashing scrappers to death round the quarries have simply moved on to the lanes. At one point there were 3 scrap discoverys stuck ,plates ripped off and abandoned where they died.Some of the thetford forest byways are shut for the next 6 months at least due to ruts that have been turned into 4 foot deep mud runs on them. One incident a while back during heavy rain saw 27 vehicles stranded in 200 yards of byway. A6x6 ex army lorry was called to help clear it . I've no issue with beating up an old 4x4 round a play site, done it myself many times but right time right place. This behaviour is just another nail in the coffin for green laning. If we don't use them we will lose them. If they are used in a dangerous or anti social way we lose them.
Covid , the 5G network causing their brain to implode .... ?WTF is wrong with people!??..
We have a lot of green lanes round our way, But more and more are being closed by the council and Barriers and notices going up.. I have nothing against the green lanners at all but more and more lanes are being used by the Morons... Iv ridden Bikes all my life, But the one thing i cant abide is the sound of a Two stroke Motorcross Bike ....Seriously
The answer to that will definitely not fit on a postcard.WTF is wrong with people!??..
maybe 40 years of politicians telling us that it's everyone for themselves , grab what you can ? Part of this message is that the consequences of our actions are other peoples problem.Any idea of a society with collective interests or responsibility has been systematically destroyed .Not sure what's going on in the world but the level of selfish and stupid behaviour seems to be spiralling out of control.
I do wonder if it's a result of a generation of parents who never used the word NO to their kids and this has 20 odd years on come back to bite society on the arse big time ....
