Petition To upgrade all English bridleways to byways.
Opening up England’s bridleways would have a fantastic impact on the UKs health and pump more money into the UK economy.
This change is mainly aimed for the trail riding community, estimated at 10,000 people.
A recent study in the European Journal of Applied Physiology demonstrated that riding a motorcycle on unsurfaced roads two to four times a week reduced blood pressure and body fat.
These changes reduce the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Research indicates that riders spend an average of £5000 equipping themselves to take up trail riding, estimated 10,000 UK riders equates to £50 million.
UK trail riders spend approximately £8.5 million per year on consumable items and insurance.
