SK2271 : Nearly run over

taken 8 years ago, near to Hassop, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Nearly run over
Nearly run over
Trials bike, one of a group of eight riders which raced towards us on a narrow path, a Restricted Byway on which mechanical vehicles are prohibited. When we called out that they were not entitled to ride on this byway, we were met by a torrent of abuse. What is it about riders on two wheels? On another path last week, near Baslow we had to jump out of the way pretty smartish. We called on the mountain bike riders to slow down, and got the reply "This is a bridleway and we can do what we want"
