It is with great sadness that I write with such negativity. I enjoyed an amazing trail run through Thetford Forest in the east of England with my wife today. The forest is beautiful and the wildlife stunning. The Forestry Commission does a great job of maintaining the paths and tracks and makes it accessible to all who wish to enjoy the diversity of a lowland, predominantly pine forest in England. The run was fantastic and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone near the area.
Sadly, I had to make a complaint to the Forestry Commission. I would like to start by saying I have always run in harmony with cyclists across the whole of the UK. I don't mind them and I have never had any abuse in return. If you want to run then run. If you want to cycle then cycle. No problems, right? Each to their own and let us all appreciate each others ways to explore the outdoors. Sadly, today, I had my first run-in with a very rude cyclist; the man who owns BikeArt in Thetford Forest, resulting in the very unusual occurrence of myself putting in a complaint. Please see my email to the Forestry Commision below.
