Joint press release by the Trail Riders Fellowship (TRF), the Green Lane Association (GLASS) and the Countryside Recreational Access Group (CRAG).

TRAIL RIDERS AND 4X4 DRIVERS UNITED AGAINST ‘ GREEN LANE COWBOYS’

A recent press release from the Trail Riders Fellowship (TRF) concerning the posting of video clips showing allegedly inappropriate vehicular use of rights of way has been taken by some to be an attack by the TRF on the (legal) use of 4x4 vehicles on Byways. This is not the case. In issuing the release the TRF was supported by the Green Lane Association (GLASS) and the Countryside Recreational Access Group (CRAG), both of whom share the TRFs concerns over abuse of rights of way by irresponsible individuals and informal groups who choose not to operate under the codes of conduct published by GLASS, the TRF or CRAG.

The TRF, GLASS and CRAG maintain a shared position: the support of responsible use of rights of way by all. Their members are anxious to stamp out the activities of the irresponsible minority who actively set out to damage rights of way and their surroundings irrespective of whether they are on two feet, four legs, or two or four wheels.  GLASS, CRAG and the TRF are actively co-operating with police and local authorities at various hot-spots throughout England and Wales so that offenders can be identified and dealt with. Members of all three groups are also monitoring YouTube and similar sites, and will offer the authorities what help they can in identifying the idiot minority who post their abusive activities on-line.
