I have just visited there website
http://www.britishwaterways.co.uk
and saw the free permits for cyclists. It seems that only anglers and boaters have to pay for the privelidge of using the canals.
There making it to easy for us to be hounded by them.

chill out go fishing

I signed a petition at the weekend to try and stop a proposed cycle route that will go along the calder and hebble canal through Wakefield/Thornhill/Dewsbury and all the way up to the Rochdale canal.

Bikes are allready a big problem on the canal, poles broken regular, they don't seem to understand how much our poles are worth when they start 'bunny hopping' them and trying to climb over them, some won't wait while you have shipped back out again after unhooking a fish/re baiting, they try and get over/under it. Really pishes me off.

At the end of the day, we pay to use the canal, money goes towards the up keep, banks etc. They pay **** all!!!!!!

Anyway, rant over [:(!]

Unless its been changed the cycle "permit" was bright orange & had to be displayed on the cycle whilst it was being used on the towpath, if you see any cyclist using a towpath without the permit displayed then you have a right to stop them & ask to see it, if they don't have one they are in essance breaking the law.

So if an unlicenced cyclist breaks any of your tackle (especially garden gnome kit) you have an even better reason to sue them [:D]
