Hi Guys i dont know anyone noticing the constant laying of logs
and branches in the brookes and paths, and i have moved some wire the other day
laying a few inches of the ground under leafs too, and the worst but all are was broken
branches pushed into the ground pointing in an upwards direction.

I have been stopping and moving these for the safety of myself and others.

Please keep your eye out and push to one side for the safety of your selves
and others.

Happy riding

    so its not just up here then..

    i posted this last year about booby traped trails at rivington. i ws out on sunday and removed around 10 6inch nails that had been stuck in the mud at an angle spike side up.. not to mention the constant trail obstructions across the trails...

    What is wrong with people? What on earth can you get out of doing something like that?

    delcol thats serious.

    No idea NikB but there must be a lot more going on.

    I hope others would read this posting and put down what they have seen
    and where just for the safety of others.

    What i have found and a lot of other bikers have noted that where the weather
    as been really bad in Epping Forest that the Horse riders have been going over
    same ground and churning up the mud so the newer riders dont go down
    the paths, Just so the Horse riders have it for them selves.
