Tony Barnett writes to the organisers, Martin Barden, UK Cycling Events
"- Cycles are vehicles, vehicles on footpaths bridle paths are prohibited,
- The council have no jurisdiction on rural common land,
- I will remind them of their remit on any vehicles traveling more than 15 meters from the steel road onto common land."

Well, Mr Taylor's statement is/was that he and friends are going to prevent your access to bridle paths, double standards?.
Cycles are vehicles, vehicles on footpaths bridle paths are prohibited, I have advised you correctly, the choice is yours, you are encouraging others to commit none compliance of common land legislation, on your head be it, I will now inform the police that you are in breach of section 34 and section 59 of 1988 road traffic act.
The council have no jurisdiction on rural common land, their statement to day was "they know about (wiggle) but have not sanctioned the event,the police have already stated they have no powers to allow or to arrest unless there is a breach of the peace, but nevertheless I will remind them of their remit on any vehicles traveling more than 15 meters from the steel road onto common land.

You will be held responsible for any infringement of the law which does hold Royal Assent, I would advise you to read the 2000 crow act.
