We need the next government to pass new legislation to defend and extend the public’s right to roam. Did you know that only 8% of England's countryside has a right to public access? 

Huge swathes of our countryside are locked away behind barbed wire fences and hostile signs saying ‘Keep Out!’

England should follow the example of Scotland, Sweden, and Norway, where people have enjoyed far broader rights to access their countryside, so long as they do so responsibly. This will inevitably create far more access for mountain biking if this happens.
