Road closed to bikes only near Ace Café

A local council has banned just motorcycles using a road near the famous Ace Café in North London as part of a six-week trial following months of complaints about anti-social riding and racing on the road. Brent council has now banned motorcycles from Rainsford Road after a number of complaints about dangerous riding and large groups of bystanders. The ban has...

It costs £90,000 to put some traffic calming measures in that little but of road? Astounding.

There is no point in moaning about discrimination against bikers , there always has been due to not enough clout  . All the new rules & laws along with the new stupid bike test - would anybody really think they would get away with it if  car drivers were treated the same ? . Many years ago bikers were stopped going into some northern east coast towns due to the bad reputation and  thoughts of  Mods & Rockers which were many years earlier , plus during the miner's strike many folk were refused free movement  across the heartland of Britain . So the councils , government and police do have a free hand in this free & pleasant land of ours ,to do what they flippin well please ! . I have been around the Ace café when the local riders get a bit "giddy" up & down the main drag , but it is mostly during the day ,and it gets quieter during the evening - boys will be boys ? .

Why is the BMF wasting resources fighting against the stupid behavior of some bikers who ride like twats through a minor residential road shortcut to the Ace instead of using the main roads?

There is a time and a place for riding like a **** and bikers need to acknowlege that riding like a loon is not appropriate in that situation. The BMF will not win that case I guarantee.

Take responsibility. I dont understand this dense attitiude of some bikers in a situation that they will lose because of thier own cuntish behavior.

Time and a place gentlemen.

It's troubling

So we have loud cars and lorries all the time we have loud air craft, we have loud youths squealing and shrieking, but the one thing they ban is motorcycles.

Is that legal? can a council just decide to ban motorcycles if so what happened to freedom living in the free world.

They should pursue the people causing the problems not those who don't, has this council banned all women from walking the streets in case they become prostitutes, or all men in case they become their customers, what no?

This council has branded all motorcyclists as irresponsible, It's not about the hospital it's not about the council and their crystal ball seeing into their future, it's about what is right and wrong and this council has acted like a dictator not only that what they have done is probably illegal.

Illegal simply because it is prejudice what next no blacks after dark, no kids beyond 10pm, where will it stop.

Just think how amazing these councillors are they must be rolling in so much money being able to predict the future, we should all write to them for the lottery results, how would they know for sure that someone will die? answer they don't all they are doing is trying to justify their prejudice by making  up lies.

Didn't Hitler do that against the Jewish people and the blacks and the polish and the list goes on.

Go after them BMF stop Hitler's decedents setting up what could potentially be the most prejudice act in this country since the last world war.
