It's actually like that here in Wales too. I mean, half of it's rural! But would you believe, all the trails are now closed off!? It's because some of them went through farmers fields, and although it was fine for horses, the motorbikers ruined it for them, but tearing up good fields! There's a petition to get them open again, and for any bikes on the canal (These are pretty much how to get onto certain trails, as long as you ride carefully along it on horseback) but motorbikes... If police catch them on the canal, they have the right to take the bikes and have them crushed.
But yeah, I wish we had trails like you guys over there! We have to travel in a horse box just to get to some of the really good ones here :/
