    If you’ve been following the creation of the new bridleway from Mankinholes to Cragg Vale this might be of interest. 

    It is currently a footpath. Calderdale ROW want to make it a bridleway and have resurfaced it/widened it. It’s not been done totally sympathetically to mountain bikers but it’s the first bit of legal bridleway to be added to Calderdale in a very long time. It’s important in that it’s part of a direct route from Todmorden straight to Sowerby Bridge. It’s almost a straight line. So, as Sue put it, please don’t complain about surfacing – it’s extra legal stuff we didn’t have.
    Two councillors however did complain so it’s going to public inquiry.
    a sample of the objections…
    Footpaths need to be protected.
    I have no intention of supporting footpaths being invaded by horses, mountain bikes or any other intrusion such as quad bikes etc!
    I think there are quite a number of bridleways which are currently in need of attention instead of stealing new ones from walkers’ footpaths.
    Who are the “We” who are so “desparate” to create new bridleways?
    Is this some sort of lobby?”
    It shows how clueless the councillor is. Quad bikes?
    The route is actually an old historic packhorse trail called Long Causeway used by horse riders for centuries. It really should be legal already.
    We (as mountain bikers) need to write letters of support for the bridleway creation and send them to Calderdale ROW.
    Please pass this on

    Dear Shaun,
    This is the  documentation for the bridleway creation from Mankinholes to Cragg Vale as a Pennine Bridleway link.  Calderdale have funding for the work from Yorkshire Forward which they have spent on doing up the section up from Withens Res to Withens Gate (thisawas discussed somewhat critically at the last bridleway group meeting, if you remember).
    Two Calderdale Councillors have objected
    It is unlikely that the two councillors will withdraw their objections, which means the whole thing will have to go to public inquiry. The Calderdale ROW unit needs some letters of support for the creation order.  Can you and some of your mountain bike colleagues write in to say what a good idea it is (and preferably refraining from complaining about the new surface)?

    The safest pools incorporate a good fence into the design. the higher
    the value, the higher the quality, other then a decent, quality bike might well be purchased for
    underneath a $1, 000 bucks, and you’ll be able to even realize
    refurbished high finish models at this value if you do don’t
    mind shopping for used equipment. The springs or elastic bands are the flexible
    attachments between the rebounding surface and the steel frame that provide resistance and added flexibility and strength to the rebounding surface.
