“The site has become increasingly popular with riders across the country. We have listened to local residents who have complained about the noise, safety for dog walkers, horse riders and vehicle parked dangerously on the verges. 

“Any riders that are seen on the private property will have their bikes seized and we will continue to run similar operations throughout the summer as part of our zero tolerance approach. 

“Anyone who witnesses off-road biking can report it to us on 101.”
