Ex­plore a green lane near you

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Adventure Special -

There are over 6000 miles of By­ways Open to All Traf­fic (BOATS) or Un­clas­si­fied Coun­try Roads (UCRS) in the UK, which most know sim­ply un­der the term ‘green lanes.’ These are usu­ally un­made roads that are im­pass­able to ev­ery­thing ex­cept off- road ma­chines. While you don’t have to join the TRF ( Trail Rid­ers Fel­low­ship) to ride the trails ( your bike does need to be road le­gal), they are do­ing their best to en­sure that these lanes are kept open to two wheel­ers and the £45-a-year fee goes to fight­ing those who want them closed off. The TRF also has re­gional groups with rid­ers who have an ex­ten­sive knowl­edge of lo­cal trails and are a bril­liant source of in­for­ma­tion and routes. So why not get ex­plor­ing? www.trf.org.uk

Join the TRF to­day, you won't re­gret it
