Anyone getting more aggro from farmers recently? Is “gravel” grinding their gears?
I was riding this track at the weekend. After about 3km there’s a gate, usually open sometimes closed. But this time padlocked a hand scrawled sign “no wheels” and a pack of savage looking farm hounds foaming at the mouth the other side of the gate.
On the OS map the track is a byway until about 100m before the gate, then it becomes a footpath. OK I’ll happy to walk that bit but I’m not climbing the gate with 5 slavering hell hounds the other side.
This combined with farmer nutnut’s stick waving anger issues a couple of weeks back makes me think that maybe word has got out.
