In reply to David Gregory, I know motorcycles still use this stretch of the Viking Way.
I have seen for myself pit bikes, quad bikes and motocross bikes on there.
None of these bikes have number plates and are often ridden by kids with no helmets.
These are the ones the police should be targeting, not the likes of myself, who ride a fully road legal motorbike which has lights and a number plate.
I would, in the future, like to think the council will come to their senses and let law abiding motorcyclists use this stretch again.
Enjoy your walking, but please remember it is a byway and not a footpath.
