Footpath Not Bridleway

Most of the route mentioned in Section 3 is along RoW footpath (NOT bridleway) and if you're mountain biking you should really be carrying your bike between leaving the road to reaching Scar End/Twistleton Hall to save yet another footpath being carved up by irresponsible mountain bikers.

What do you think?
