The Trail Riders Fellowship has questioned the Peak District National Park Authority’s agenda, after it banned vehicles from using green lanes in Edale and Chinley last Friday.

Chapel Gate, a bridleway south west of Edale, and the Roych, a dirt track near Chinley, are both now subject to full traffic orders, which exclude trail bikes and four-by-fours.

The permanent legal orders relate to a 3.5 kilometre stretch of the Roych that is part of the Pennine Bridleway, and a three-kilometre stretch of Chapel Gate which skirts Rushup Edge.

The authority hopes the ban will safeguard the natural beauty and special characteristics of the landscapes and the amenity for other users.

The fellowship said it was “disappointed but not surprised” by the decision, which marks the public body’s second attempt to close the routes.
