Thumbs down dear fellows, enduro and trial might be over in Italy

dear bikers all over Europe, bad news for everybody.

It's currently being discussed a regional law in the Emilia-Romagna region (the long one over Tuscany) to forbid the use of any kind of off-road lane to any kind of motorized vehicle, including DOWNHILL BIKES - yeah, those little things w/o engines-

you'll be able to go offroad only with a permit and only if the local authority has any plan to do so. fees will reach up to 2000 Euros, and bikes will be confiscated to ensure the payment.

There's little but hardcore mobilization here. this is the link to the plan (italian of course) http://demetra.regione.emilia-romagn...egge:2012;3351

our fear is that this kind of law is nothing but a moneybringer and it will be soon applied to the entire nation. Highways fees had been increased again this year and that is something.

Attached you'll find both phone numbers and mail addresses for each of counsellor who's backing this law. i think some "external" pressure from all over the world would prove useful to our cause.

feel free to ask me whatever drills yer brain, and remeber I'M A NOOB, so if I have violated any rule plz tell me asap. plus i'd like to post this on other more visited sections of the forum, would you suggest me where?

Thanks for posting.

Can you briefly explain what this means for trail riding in the area, for example what is allowed now and what will you/we end up with? I'm assuming there are wide open tracks that are used as rural roads and that these will not be effected and that we're mostly talking of single track trails being closed. or is it likely to be a ban on all non tarmac roads?

Is there an Italian equivilent of Codever in France or the Trail Riders Fellowhsip in the UK that fight to preserve access rights?

This is a worrying trend throughout Europe that is a threat to tourism, in this case it's mot only trail bikes but also the mountain bikes.

I'll try and find time to read up on all the info you've posted.

Many thanks, Rob

rob, as far that i know we don't have any official association backing us up, there's is an influent gunnery ass. known as Arcicaccia whic may or may not stir up because this law forbids access even to the" carriaie" witch are the cart tracks. aka these

even these will be off-limits w/o a permit (most probably a fee paid to the local or provincial office) this may affect the outsiders since they may be notified and have their bikes sequestrated w/o notice, see art 12 comma 2 point E


there was an informal meeting last week from all over the region, still the law proposition isn't "common knowledge" for most of the bikers around here.

Cool2

in an encredible turn of events and thanks to the guys from the CER http://www.enduroterapia.com/Enduroterapia/Home.html the purpose of the law has been turned around and now it's no longer forbidden to all enginereed vehicles to use any of the aforementioned roadways. It's even better than it was before!



the whole trial/enduro roadway system will be put online by the region gov itself and gps tracks will be available asap. here's an english wip page for that http://ambiente.regione.emilia-romag...e-dei-sentieri

Sounds like the Hotel & Restaurant owners got hold of them. There's NOTHING that they dislike more than something that will chase away customers.

Auguri!

What excellent news.

We are still in 'fighting retreat' mode here in Great Britain.
