Yesterday I slipped over the Border into Northumberland, now when south of the border I am always quite careful about where I go as english landowners always seem to go on a bits strange, and this one was certainly no exception. Yesterdays ride was about 30 miles 3 of which involved using public paths, both shown on the OS map as a right of way. I quite often travel this way its nice to get off the bike and walk a bit. The second path which was mostly a farm track and completely unsuitable for my road bike so I was walking and pushing the bike. I was stopped by the farmer / landowner who had driven down the track in his land rover to catch me up. I was told I had to go back as this was a path and no bikes were allowed, I thought he joking at first, but he wasn't he even got quite threatening. I told him he was being ridiculous suggested he call the ploice and carried on my way. Now looking at the English law he may of had a point, it would appear that bikes are allowed on Bridleways but not on paths. However the law seems to apply to riding a bike. Does anyone know if the law applies to someone who is walking and pushing a bike. So my question is, technically was I in the right or wrong?
