Following a long campaign by various bodies and organisations to improve access to the countryside for mountain biking use, the Welsh Government has just announced its agreed to begin the process of reviewing & potentially implementing:
Multi Use paths (allowing cycling access on footpaths)
Reduce restrictions associated with open access land.
Extract from Welsh Government written statement:
“I will progress significant changes to access rights and facilitate an assumption of non-motorised multi-use on access land and the public rights of way network. This will provide users such as cyclists and horse riders with many more opportunities to access the outdoors near to where they live in line with the goals set out in the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act 2015 and complementing the provisions of the Active Travel (Wales) Act and the Environment (Wales) Act.”
The full statement can be viewed online on Welsh Government website.
We hope that these changes will be implemented & introduced in the near future, so we can take our customers on a variety of new trails & places in the Brecon Beacons & further afield.
