UK folk. What gives with this? You can ride a bike on a bridleway, but you can't on a footpath. No problem with this. But I was told that you are not allowed to walk with your bike on a footpath, and if you want to take a bike on a footpath, you have to carry it?
Another person, said ride on the footpath, it's generally OK. As I understand the law, a footpath is just that. You are not allowed to ride a bike or a horse on a footpath. Maybe that jerk was just a chancer. I can see some really nice rides in a forest near where I live, but a number of bridleways are punctuated by footpaths. Anyone got a clearer (factual) explanation for me.
