    Afternoon

    My mate put me on to this track a few weeks back and I've cycled along it since ,Its wide enough for a car all the way and people have obviously used 4x4's on it before due to the tracks, does it show up on any land ranger /OS maps as a proper lane or is it just a farm track?

    I've highlighted it in red from the Byway map site.

    Wanted to check if it is an official lane before trying the Disco on it.

    Thanks

    I'd be up for that, need to ease back in gently though as been a number of years. The 2000 disco 2 I have at present has an ABS sensor down so no traction control, not sure how good they are without traction. It does have a set of brand new set of BF Goodrich ATs on though in 265/65/18.
