IN REPLY to Peter Mannings' letter in Postbag (April 19) I would like to know what makes him think that only car drivers are allowed to enjoy a drive on a sunny spring day.
We have ridden out to Finchingfield and have been unable to park our bike because it is full of cars. No, I didn't count the drivers.
Is it only car drivers who are allowed to fill the village café? They might have in the past. We didn't complain, it's nice to see a village business thriving.
If the village green was covered in 'leather clad bodies' it proves they were wearing the correct clothing for bike riding.
Finchingfield is a pretty village, visited by many bikers throughout the year, not just on a sunny spring day. This is giving trade to local businesses, not riding 'rough shod over'. Bikers are just as entitled to use the British countryside as cars.
I will close by saying I would never have thought at the age of 52 we would be accused of riding rough shod over anyone.
