The ban on motorcyclists allowed by Sam Smiths Brewery at their Royal OaK, Ulley, premises, as reported in National News last evening unfairly discriminates against a social group. Many motorcyclists may have been long term customers for many years without the pub management knowing unless they arrive at said pub on motorcycle.
I have informed the national organisation which campaigns (effectively) for Motorcyclist Rights and Interests and is widely respected by local government across the U.K. for its measured approach to working with local authorities to improve road conditions, attitudes and general treatment of this segment of society.
The Motorcycle Action Group, a founder group of the Federation of European Motorcyclists has over 50,000 (Fiifty Thousand) members who will boycott Sam Smiths Public Houses, Licensed Premises and all Sam Smiths Products across the United Kingdom until this unfair, unreasonable ban has been lifted.
Personally, as a customer of The Mill at Withington, a Sam Smiths Pub for over 35 years, I will cease to visit until this ban is lifted.
