We ride that service road up onto chew, i think what lies behind this could be that technically it's a beauty spot with mountain hare and birds of prey and from what i've witnessed ('yo....take it with ya') not all bike riders are too concerned about blatanly littering the gaff (rangers/guides within eyeballing distance)....no justification for the traps by any stretch but we've never had any mither from anyone. I'd think the speed some folk ride down the service road also upsets folk, one of my party does it having to slalom walkers on the up, funny he's never so keen to show the same determined rideing when ascending.
Corsarob...thats not your little mob shouting about the 22 min record last summer was it?..it's at 18mins 14 sec's now (for now)
nope,not me,(i`m much faster than that)lol
, the Dukenfield mob i chatted with had simply rode down the hill to have a do at it, we've a hilly 17mile to cover for the opportunity. Take a car loaded bike to it and it's thrashable. Beautiful and quiet when the lights just rising or falling.
Had an oppo have a ringle fascia stem plate crack right at the end of the descent, few months back(so near and yet so far)...not been back since.
