National Resources Wales (Formerly the Forestry Commission) recently installed a new motorbike barrier in the forestry in Abercynon. due to numerous issues with illegal off road motorbikes. Before installing the barrier they held a consultation with around 6 local horse riders to ensure that horses could still gain access to the tracks in the area. A horse step-over was then installed a little further down the track. Natural Resources Wales have received some phone calls recent;y from local horse riders with concerns that the track is blocked by the motorbike barrier – this is not the case.
Natural Resources Wales have provided a map showing the new motorbike barrier and new horse access. Please click link to view map penparc.
