I go greenlaning[in an old lightweight land rover] but have to go quite a way form my house to get to the nearest lanes. I started riding a push bike .....
me, too, bought my LR LWT to go greenlaning a couple of years before a lot of the greenlanes were made inaccessible, being a 3.5 l V8 is kinda expensive to run and I need to go some distance to the nearest greenlane.
anyway, footpaths - I see no reason why cyclists should not be allowed same access as walkers, they create no more damage. The few
times I have been on a footbath, I've hardly ever see any walkers and if I do, I stop and let them go by.
