Once again, we are getting complaints regarding illegal riding on private land and in state owned forestry. The message is simple “Stop It” venues are being lost through this irresponsible behaviour, the sport can’t continue to lose venues so if you see illegal riding report it to the police in the first instance and then the ACU for us to take action.
If you are in any doubt of where you can ride here are some simple guidelines.
You can only ride on vehicular rights of ways or private land specifically with the owner’s permission, by owner we mean the person that owns the land not someone in the pub that says it will be ok.
· There’s a grounding number of practice tracks and venues becoming available so use then or even better enter ACU permitted events.
· Forestry, open moorland and common land are not playgrounds you can only use rights of ways in these areas.
· Remember just because a club uses a piece of land it doesn’t give you the right to ride there.
· The police have the power to confiscate your machine if you are caught illegal riding.
Remember – Ride legally or not at all.
