Had a great ride out today. Bet a nice guy that had been everywhere. And advised me of a route along the claerwen reservoir, great road, but I'm not sure if you are or are not aload to use it. There was private road signs, was i allowed to go this way.

Also when heading back from the beach. The road was closed so I decided to go on the other side of the river to devils bridge and there was a large river crossing, I didn't go across because I didn't know if I was allowed. Anyone have any ideas. If you are

Also if a signs says unsuitable for motor vehicle does this mean you can't go that way or is it just warning you.

Cant help you with the river crossing im afriad but you might want to try these guys who might know http://www.vdsr.co.uk/index.php.

Myself and Byway Billy were riding the Claerwen reservoir trail on Saturday. Luckily when we got to the gate where the sign reads private road, the farmer was out in a nearby field, he told me there is a small section of private road and really you should turn back when you get to the gate. However he also said that as we were not loud (on 660z Tens) and not hooning about we were ok to use it.

The farmer was a nice chap spoke to him for a few minutes. So the key here is to show respect.

Noticed that this trail along claerwen reservoir is in ABR magazine this month, with no mention of the private road signposted next to the wooden bridge. The OS map seems to suggest that a section of it is private as there are no green indications on a small section of the track.

Spotted an ABR sticker up that way on Saturday on a KTM Adventure with luggage, did not get chance to speak with him but if he reads this or it was you Heavysnake...what a place!! Hope you enjoyed it..

Re the clarwen reservoir..

There is a small sretch of private road from the bridge for a short distance
and then it becomes a UCR for the remainder (heading generally westwards )
I was told on good authority that the tenant farmer generally doesnt mind but the
landowner does !
Ridden this a few times without problems.. The comment about sensible riding is spot on .. (thumbs)
