Other Bridleway & Restricted Byway Users

From time to time motorised vehicles, cyclists and trail riders use the bridleway network for rallies, etc. We will post here any information we have about when these are to happen. If you know of any coming soon in your area please contact the web master Amanda Hamley: amanda.hamley1@gmail.com to have it listed on the web site.

 

If you would like to try riding in a different area of Somerset, have a look at the South Somerset Bridleways Association website.
