Trail bike damage below Knapside Hill
Trail bike damage below Knapside Hill
These ruts were apparent much of the way from the footpath entry onto the open fell right across to Melmerby Fell Link The people who ride these bikes (illegally) on public footpaths and over fragile ground could not care less about the environment. I have reported the problem to the North Pennines AONB unit so at least they are aware of the situation.
