Trail riders gather for final ride on Peak District lane

The Trail Riders Fellowship is inviting trail riders and recreational motorists to take the final opportunity to enjoy the experience of motoring on Long Causeway, Stanage Edge on 14 September before it is closed to vehicles forever by the Peak District National Park Authority.

Riders and drivers are asked to bring a small present for Operation Christmas Child, which sends gifts to some of the world’s most deprived children (see http://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/how-to-pack-a-shoebox/ for details of suitable gifts) or make a financial donation.

Members of Manchester TRF will be on hand to lead small groups on tours of other iconic lanes in the Peak District.

A spokesman for the TRF said: “It is to the shame of the PDNPA that it has chosen to close this lane: a decision which flies in the face of the century-old heritage of motorcycle touring on the unmade roads of the Peak District. We urge all trail riders to make the most of this opportunity while they have the chance, and do something positive for charity at the same time, as the Traffic Regulation Order will come into force on 19 September.

“The TRF and other motoring and motorcycling organizations will continue to defend the rights of all to use rights of way in the Peak District.”

The gathering will take place at The Pole, Stanage Edge at around noon.
