A difficult ascent of the ‘green lane’ between Scugdale and Raisdale hindered a large party of off road motor cyclists coming down. Not aggressive but nevertheless very intimidating. I did take some pictures of the bikers but eventually settled on a nice rainbow to post. instead. Several years ago there was talk of the National Park closing the lane to off road vehicles such has been done in the Peak District. A committee was set up to look into it, The North York Moors Unsealed Route Management Advisory Group (URMAG), which promptly spent the next year or so compiling a report. That was in 2012. It doesn’t look as though there has been any progress since. Or else a closure is not being policed.
