A CYCLING club has been ticked off - after members illegally took part in time trials on the Trans Pennine Trail.

Penistone East councillor Paul Hand-Davis told Penistone Town Council about the issue last Monday.

Use of the trail has been an issue recently with a number of disputes between the different users including dog walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

"Tarmacing has speeded the whole thing up," said Cllr Hand-Davis.

"A cycling club has been time trialling on there but we stopped that because it’s illegal."

Cllr Hand-Davis said putting signs on the trail was one idea being discussed.
