I'm with kawasakibiker on this. It's absolute bollocks. The next thing will be compulsory GPS tracking fitted to every bike and car on the road. I don't even live in Derbyshire but I'd support any activity to bring this scheme to it's knees before other councils across the UK start thinking it's a good idea.
As much as I dislike Jeremy Clarkson, I couldn't help sharing this...
Kawasakibiker made a comment about using anything with tyres to bring one of these routes to a standstill but come on, you're really not using your imagination here!!! Surely the best way to do that would be for a couple of hundred bikers to walk the busiest 5 mile section of the route at the busiest time of the day, then back the other way, making sure that no vehicle, especially bikes, got in or out of the towns and villages. The local businesses relying on tourist traffic would soon make their voices heard and walking it would certainly make the media take notice as you're making a statement, rather than just being a hindrance.
Secondly, I also agree with publishing details of the people behind the scheme on the internet. Get as much information as possible including names, home addresses and photographs of the people responsible and also photo's of their homes, their cars and if you really want to make a point, their family.
And get maybe 10 motorcycles with video cameras, following them for a full day, being as conspicuous as possible, recording everything from leaving the house, going to work, going shopping, the school run, etc, etc, etc.
See how they fucking like it!
