I agree 100% with the impact on the water way. The trail that was there crossed the river as little as possible I think 2-3 times and where it did the water was very shallow and was a hard rock or river rock bottom. The horses that used the trail had a longer lasting impact using the water way more and damaging the soft edge more. But again I understand your concern. As for the insurance aspect I expect not to be covered any time I leave public roads and other than my own vehicle damage don't see many other risks. Like I said we where always polite to others we came across on the trail and did not use speeds that would endanger others.
I refuse to believe that there is no areas south of To and north of London that is not suitable for this hobby. I'm sure there is and being used to this day I just have to find them.
