Trail rules

  • Use only vehicular rights of way.
    Trail riding is only lawful on public roads. If in doubt, check with the Highway Authority or the TRF. Motorcycles and riders must be road-legal. Green lanes are subject to the same laws as surfaced roads.
  • Keep to the defined way across farmland
    Wheels can damage crops and grass. Wandering from the road onto farmland or moorland is trespassing. If in doubt, ask.
  • Give way to walkers, horses and cyclists
    As a courtesy, On narrow lanes, stop and switch off engines.
  • Fasten gates to safeguard stock
    Except those tied open for farming purposes. An open gate invites animals to stray, endangering themselves, and crops or traffic.
  • Travel at a safe speed
    Ride at a reasonable speed, taking regard of conditions and visibility. This should not exceed the voluntary maximum of 25mph.
  • Ride quietly
    Machines must be effectively silenced. Use the throttle with discretion, as noise can offend. Green lanes are subject to the same laws as surfaced roads.
  • Honour the country code
    Respect the countryside and those who live, work and play in it. Green lanes can be valuable habitats, so take special care in spring and early summer.
  • ldentify yourself
    Carry your membership card with you when trail riding, so that you may identify yourself as a current member of the TRF – and display a current membership sticker.
