Danger to Cyclists using farm road past ROTSEA CARR Pig Farm Hempholm

July 31st, 2017

Last Sunday we were prevented from using the short piece of farm road between the public roads from Rotsea and Hempholm, just after crossing the river bridge (bridlepath) we were stopped, by a very aggressive couple, from using the road past their farm.

The sole – shouty – argument was that they were members of a pig health scheme (voluntary organisation that only examines slaughtered pigs for disease) and that their pigs would be at risk from our 25 mm width tyres bring disease from the public roads that join on to the farm road at each end.

The private signed farm road is not gated and has no warning signs and is clearly a thorough route to and from the boats at the bridge and the farm holiday cottages at the farm (offering safe cycling on the Wolds) next to the to the pig farm. The alternative route west adds a significant number of miles to the ride from that side of the river to the 'Way of the Roses' cafe at Hutton Cranswick.

Reasonable argument to let us pass failed and the male jumped into his 4×4 truck with much swearing and drove towards the 3 of us that had not already turned back before jumping out and agressively confronting the remaining rider.

You have been warned, cyclist haters are everywhere.
